PUC Restarts ME1

“The biggest obstacle we face with respect to energy in Pennsylvania is a deficiency of adequate infrastructure. So when an operational line like Mariner East 1 shuts down, it has ripple effects not just here but throughout the entire region. The PUC’s own exhaustive investigation makes clear that there are now issues with the integrity of the line and that it is safe to operate. This action is more evidence of the strict oversight to ensure the safe operation of pipelines in Pennsylvania. Restarting the Mariner East pipeline is an important step in getting our energy economy back on track and encouraging further development.”
