SHAMOKIN DAM, Pa. (AP) Federal officials have signed off on a plan to build a 34-mi. (54.7 km) pipeline through five central Pennsylvania counties that will carry natural gas to a power plant being built along the Susquehanna River.

Federal energy regulators approved the Sunbury Pipeline Project.

The pipeline would service the power plant being built in Shamokin Dam, about 40 mi. (64 km) north of Harrisburg, and will travel through Lycoming, Montour, Northumberland, Union and Snyder counties.

UGI Energy Services Inc. spokesman Kenneth Robinson said they are pleased with the approval. Construction should begin after state environmental regulators issue the necessary permits.

The utility said they plan to complete the pipeline in November and have gas available early next year.
