Clarion Co. Commissioner Brosius: Marcellus Development in Perry Township Is Good News

A pipeline for natural gas liquids by Stonehenge Energy Resources “will connect Laurel Mountain Energy’s wells in Clarion County and collect up the NGLs (things like ethane and propane) from those wells and flow it to neighboring Butler County,” according to Marcellus Drilling News.

“The county did get a municipal notice this past summer informing us that Laurel Mountain Production LLC was applying for coverage under the Joint Application for PA Chapter 105 Water Obstruction and Encroachment Permit and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Section 404 Permit from the PA DEP,” says Brosius.

“The project involved the improvement of about 2500 feet of McNany Road which is located north of West Freedom and Route 368.  The project will fix the road from the intersection with Lime Plant Road to the proposed Windy Oakland Well Pad entrance. Laurel Mountain is to widen the road to 22 feet and replace cross drain culverts.  They have already done some tree removal, but the road work probably won’t be done until the winter weather subsides.”

Pittsburgh Business Times last week also reported Seneca is putting the finishing touches on the pipeline that will also send the NGL to other markets via the Revolution Pipeline.

In 2015, Laurel Mountain Energy received two permits, one for the KENNEMUTH 1H well and the other for KENNEMUTH 2H. Both wells are located in Perry Township.

According to the Stonehenge website, Stonehenge Laurel Gathering, LLC was formed in 2017 as a 60/40 partnership between Stonehenge Energy Resources II, L.P. and Laurel Mountain Energy, LLC to construct a natural gas gathering system to transport NGL-rich natural gas production from Clarion County, Pennsylvania to the Energy Transfer System in Butler County for eventual processing and distribution of the various products out of the Revolution Plant located in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

The output will be cleaned and separated for various products at the Washington plant.

“I have spoken with one of the Perry Township supervisors, and he said he’s pretty pleased with how Laurel is contributing financially to the township when it comes to fixing potholes, broken pavement, and applying anti-skid because of the truck traffic,” says Brosius. 

“The gas company has also been very cooperative with fixing a bridge and patching Terwilliger Road, which is south of West Freedom and Route 368.”
