Commonwealth Pipeline is not over

Citing low natural gas prices and a slow economy, backers of the Commonwealth pipeline suspended the project. But that does not mean this pipeline, or a variant of it, will not eventually be developed. John J. Sherman, chief executive of Inergy Midstream L.P., told investors, “We still believe that the project is needed, it’s a good project, and it’s just a matter of time before it develops,”  Inergy, based in Kansas City, Mo., would have built and operated the pipeline.

News items from The Inquirer, announcing the suspension, and the Daily Local News, covering concerns of local politicians, reinforce the notion that we have not seen the end of Commonwealth’s plan for East Nantmeal.
