Your source for Marcellus Shale community & coverage
Introduction
Pipeline is a news site dedicated to chronicling the Marcellus Shale natural gas boom. Pipeline launched in February, 2011 and is maintained by a team of reporters at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. 

We're based in Pennsylvania, but as shale development spreads throughout West Virginia, Ohio and New York, the scope of our coverage expands along with it.

Pipeline is both an online guide to breaking news and a resource for community members who are just hearing about natural gas drilling for the first time.
