LINDEN Energy Services is focused on the development of natural gas gathering systems that serve to carry natural gas from wells to midstream pipelines, which are the larger pipeline systems connecting gathering systems and major transmission lines. The company’s planned routes intersect or cross four existing or planned major transmission lines in five locations.
While the primary focus will be on natural gas pipelines, the company is also exploring a number of other opportunities such as water draw and delivery lines, which would serve wells along the pipeline network.
The Company’s pipeline system enjoys differentiation through its unique route planning strategy. This strategy includes the acquisition of strategically located but currently abandoned rail corridors located in the rich Marcellus Shale deposit areas. Through these established corridors, the company will enjoy relatively flat areas (no more than 2% grade) and stable ground for construction thereby avoiding wetland areas.
Given the history of the planned transportation corridors, the company faces few impediments to construction making the planned infrastructure less costly than comparable projects. As former utility corridors, the permitting, entitlement and engineering processes should be relatively simple.
