The Marcellus Shale is one of the largest reserves of natural gas in the U.S. And it is literally in McKim & Creed’s backyard.
The Marcellus Shale formation covers more than 100,000 square miles in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and West Virginia. This is one of many Marcellus projects McKim & Creed has been involved with.
For this design-build venture, McKim & Creed designed and built a water intake structure, pump station and nearly 3,000 feet of pipeline. The pipe transports water from the Youghiogheny River through a freshwater pipeline in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania which connects the water intake structure and pump station at the river to a central impoundment facility on the client’s well pad.
By working with the natural resources available in our own backyard, we are, in a sense, helping to produce our own energy.
