West Virginia Pipeline Project
Interstate fluid pipeline for Marcellus drilling

 
BEECH BOTTOM, WEST VIRGINIA - Most drivers probably don't notice very much while passing this Beech Bottom site, except for five blue Dragon mixing tanks. That stretch of highway along the Ohio River is an industrialized area with power plants and heavy industry extending for miles along the banks of the Ohio.
 
This new site, marked only with a small sign "Chesapeake Beech Bottom Water Withdrawal & Staging Area" brings questions to mind. Is this strictly a water withdrawal point, or will it also handle Marcellus Shale gas drilling wastewater? The "mixing" tanks make you wonder, especially since they are sitting on a spill protection mat with raised skirting.
 
Traveling up Route 67 from Route 2 toward Bethany, Pennsylvania, one can see what appears to be the rest of this pipeline plan. Even though signage changes from Chesapeake to Range Resources, the two projects appear to be linked. White plastic pipe is seen at various road and culvert crossings in West Virginia and Pennsylvania. The current pipeline appears to end at the Goettel Impoundment Dam along Route 231 (Scenic Drive) within one mile of the intersection with Route 844 (Washington Pike).
   
Dashed-line marks the approximate route
of the 10-mile interstate pipeline.
