A group of concerned citizens under the name ProtectNorthernPA.org are asking for public response to a proposed liquified natural gas (LNG) plant in Bradford County and potential shipping path for the product to a New Jersey port for exporting.
“Liquified natural gas is a chilled, condensed form of methane drilled from the northeast Pennsylvania marcellus shale region,” said the group’s head, Diana Dakey. “In order to export this product, it is chilled and condensed down to 1/600th of its original volume and put into tanker trucks or rail cars to be delivered to ships where it can be exported.”
