By Phaedra Friend Troy

Laurel Mountain Midstream is progressing on the construction of its new expansion gathering system in the Marcellus Shale.

The first phase of the expansion program is expected to be completed and transporting natural gas by the fourth quarter of 2010. Initial deliveries into the Shamrock station in Fayette Country are scheduled for early in the first quarter of 2011.

Designed for high-volume, high-pressure Marcellus Shale natural gas wells, the pipeline expansion program will gather natural gas produced by Atlas Energy  (Nasdaq:ATLS) in the Appalachian Basin.

Laurel Mountain Midstream is a joint venture between Atlas Pipeline Partners (NYSE:APL) and Williams Companies (NYSE:WMB). The midstream company operates more than 1,800 miles of pipelines that gather natural gas from more than 7,400 wells in Pennsylvania, New York, Ohio and Tennessee.
