Construction of a branch line to move Marcellus Shale gas from Susquehanna and Broome counties to a major distribution network is expected to begin in late summer and be completed by year's end, according to developers.

The project, proposed by Laser Midstream of Houston, would connect gas fields in northern Pennsylvania to the Millennium Pipeline, which bisects Broome and Tioga counties and leads to major markets in the Northeast.

It also would service gas fields in southwestern Broome County, if and when they are developed.

The construction phase would last about 100 days and require between 120 and 150 workers, said Laser Midstream president Chip Berthelot. The project would employ between eight and 12 permanent workers.
