Here is where some info about the Keystone Pipeline
should go.  This article is still a stub and needs your

The Keystone Pipeline is a 280 mile proposed pipeline by Dominion Transmission Inc. that will begin in Greene County and end in Chester County, Pennsylvania. The preliminary schedule calls for a starting date in the spring of 2011.

It will be a 36-inch-diameter pipe.

The pipeline's east end will tie into a transmission lines feeding the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast. It will ship Marcellus shale formation gas to northeastern population centers.

According to an August, 2009 press release, Dominion and Williams Transco announced a joint venture called the Keystone Connector to market and develop a new pipeline to transport natural gas from the Rockies and southern Marcellus shale to markets in eastern U.S. cities.

Dominion owns drilling rights to about 600,000 to 800,000 acres of prospective shale. Dominion has assigned about one-sixth of these rights to Antero Resources.
