Brief -- Atlantic Sunrise

The Pennsylvania Game Commission has agreed to license a 50-foot wide right-of-way in Lebanon County, PA, to Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Co. (Transco) for its Atlantic Sunrise project. In exchange, Transco will convey to the commission 117 acres near game lands in Monroe County, PA, and another 120 acres in Lackawanna County, PA. The company would still be required to pay the agency's habitat, surface and timber damages, as well as its standard annual license fee for as long as it remains active. The license authorizes 1,320 linear feet of 42-inch diameter natural gas pipeline within the right-of-way that would occupy 1.52 acres. Transco would also use and reclaim an additional 1.32 acres of game lands outside of the easement. The Atlantic Sunrise project would help move natural gas from Northeast Pennsylvania to markets in the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast by expanding the Transco system to add 1.7 million Dth/d of capacity.
