PITTSBURGH (AP) — An energy company has announced changes to the route of a proposed Pennsylvania natural gas pipeline in response to public complaints.

The Lancaster Intelligencer Journal ( ) reports Thursday that Tulsa, Oklahoma-based Williams Partners LP now plans to avoid the Shenk's Ferry Wildflower Preserve and Tucquan Glen Nature Preserve. Those areas are about 75 miles west of Philadelphia.

Williams spokesman Chris Stockton says the change was a direct result of feedback from county residents. The proposed 177-mile Central Penn Line South pipeline would transport Marcellus Shale natural gas, and must be approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

The Marcellus Shale is a gas-rich formation that lies under large parts of Pennsylvania, West Virginia, New York and other states.
