HOUSTON, Feb. 26 -- A pipeline to connect Devonian Marcellus shale gas is under construction in northeastern Pennsylvania.
Epsilon Energy Ltd., Concord, Ont., began building the pipeline and compression facilities known as its Highway 706 project, in which it holds 100% working interest, in southwestern Susquehanna County. It has acquired more than 25 miles of right-of-way.
Epsilon, which is drilling its eighth well in the project area, plans to start gas production before the end of June 2009. The pipeline will deliver gas to Tennessee Gas Transmission Corp.
The eighth well, Hardic-2H, is a horizontal Marcellus well. Epsilon plans to frac its fourth well, Poulson-2H, at the end of February. It has more than 100 other well locations.
Epsilon holds 47,000 gross acres in Pennsylvania and New York, including 12,000 gross and net acres in the Highway 706 project.
