The Mariner East 2 pipeline project is a critical infrastructure project that will provide countless benefits for all Pennsylvanians. For the Pennsylvania residents who depend on propane for winter heat or the increased access to ethane to fuel a manufacturing resurgence and the countless everyday products made from energy products, pipeline infrastructure development is necessary to move these products to market. In addition, according to the United States Department of Transportation Pipeline Hazardous Materials Safety Administration, pipelines are the safest way to transport energy resources.
As Delaware County, Pennsylvania residents who build projects like Mariner East 2 for a living, we support this project. Mariner East 2 will be built by highly trained, skilled union workers, which ensures that the pipeline will be built utilizing state of the art technology and redundancies to ensure safe operation of the throughout the life of the pipeline.
We urge the Middletown Township Council to support this project without delay.
