Pipeline to N.C. would start in Pa.
CUMBERLAND, Md. — A senator from West Virginia says the natural gas industry plans a pipeline to take gas from south central Pennsylvania to North Carolina.
Aides to Sen. Joe Manchin tell the Cumberland Times-News that Houston-based Spectra Energy has proposed a 427-mile pipeline running from a compressor station in Bedford, Pa., across Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia to a Duke Energy facility in North Carolina.
The newspaper reported that the underground pipeline would enter Maryland near Flintstone and continue through Oldtown, where it would cross the Potomac River into Green Spring, W.Va.
