A new 50-mile pipeline is gathering natural gas from north central West Virginia and sending it to markets.

The Stonewall Gas Gathering Pipeline began operations on November 30. The Exponent Telegram reports that the pipeline runs from Doddridge County to a Columbia Gas pipeline in Braxton County that transports gas to markets across the Mid-Atlantic and the Gulf Coast.

The pipeline is owned by M3 Midstream, also known as Momentum. Momentum spokesman Dave Mashek says the pipeline will carry up to 1.4 billion cubic feet of gas daily when it becomes fully operational next summer.

Stonewall Gas Gathering spokesman Jerry Tingler says the pipeline gathers gas produced in an area around Doddridge, Harrison and Lewis counties, along with portions of southern Pennsylvania.
