" Susquehanna County contains some of the most prolific gas wells in the Marcellus Shale," said Cianci. "Bluestone is part of our strategy to grow our natural gas business in the Northeast and provide a significant supply feed to the Millennium Pipeline."
Once online, Bluestone is expected to deliver over 1 Tcf of natural gas to Millennium and Tennessee Pipeline, with room to expand as demand increases over time.
Bluestone will be DTE Energy's first gathering project outside Michigan. The company currently owns a 550 mile natural gas gathering system in northern Michigan which is designed to aggregate natural gas from the Antrim Shale and the Niagaran formations.
