Join PEIA in Supporting Infrastructure Investment
We are united in supporting energy infrastructure investments in Pennsylvania. When responsibly built, safely and efficiently operated, and carefully maintained to ensure long-term integrity, pipelines are an important piece of the state’s economic future. Increasing development of the Commonwealth’s prolific shale gas reserves is in the best interest of Pennsylvanians, our communities, and the nation.
Pipeline projects provide real and tangible local economic benefits:
- Pennsylvania is now the second highest U.S. natural gas producing state thanks to the Marcellus and Utica Shale Formations.
- Mariner East will have a $9.1 billion economic impact on the Pennsylvania economy.
- The Atlantic Sunrise project will result in an estimated $1.6 billion increase in economic activity in the area.
We urge you to help support the energy industry in Pennsylvania. In order to ensure the safe delivery of homegrown energy resources, we must make sure infrastructure development is keeping up with production.
