Pennsylvania Pipeline Task Force Designed to Help ‘Natural Gas Industry Succeed’

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday announced the formation of a task force to help the oil and natural gas industry, the state and various stakeholders collaborate on pipeline development.

Wolf said the Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force would be an “unprecedented collaboration of stakeholders to facilitate the development of a world-class pipeline infrastructure system.” The group would include representatives from state agencies, the legislature, federal and local governments, environmental groups, producers and midstream companies.
