Pipeline plans for Warwick Township

Commonwealth Pipeline LLC is considering constructing a natural gas pipeline that would travel through  Warwick Township, Chester County. The pipeline's construction is contingent upon end users, or natural gas drillers, signing on to have their Marcellus Shale gas use the system. The Commonwealth Pipeline is also expected to connect with UGI Energy Service‚Äôs natural gas liquefaction, vaporization, and storage facility near Temple, Berks County, and to run near or connect with multiple natural gas distribution systems in southeastern Pennsylvania. The maps below show the north-south path the pipeline would run (Map No. 1) and the route the pipeline could take through Chester County (Map No. 2). The exact route has not yet been determined.
