Availability of the Governor's Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force Draft Final Report
[45 Pa.B. 6638]
[Saturday, November 14, 2015]
In the next decade, this Commonwealth will undergo a substantial pipeline infrastructure growth to transport gas and related byproducts from thousands of wells throughout this Commonwealth. This unprecedented development creates an opportunity for the Commonwealth to engage stakeholders in a collaborative process to achieve a world-class pipeline infrastructure system.
On July 7, 2015, Governor Tom Wolf announced the 48-member Pipeline Infrastructure Task Force (Task Force), informed by 12 different workgroups. The workgroups met over the course of 3 months and developed recommendations for pipeline development with a focus on:
• Conservation and Natural Resources
• County Government
• Emergency Preparedness
• Environmental Protection
• Historical/Cultural/Tribal Impacts
• Local Government
• Natural Gas End Use
• Pipeline Safety and Integrity
• Public Participation
• Siting and Routing
• Workforce and Economic Development
The recommendations developed by the workgroups will be reported to the Task Force for additional discussion, consideration and assimilation into the final report that will be presented to Governor Tom Wolf in February 2016.
