Transporting the Gas

According to stats from PA, pipelines ROW (right of ways) average 12 acres per mile. With 75 wells pads estimated in Garrett County and an average of 16 miles per line 75 X 16 = 1200 X 12 = 14,400 acres that are removed from any other development. Now add in the pad sites (estimated to be between 5 and 10 acres depending on site conditions and company requirements) 75 X 10 = 750 acres.
