The Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association (PAPGA) today issued the following statement after the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) issued permits late Monday, Feb. 13 that will allow construction to begin on the Mariner East 2 pipeline project:
“The Mariner East 2 pipeline project will benefit our industry by bringing more product to market, which will help the communities we serve and the customers who rely on us. The project also will bring thousands of construction jobs that will provide a boost all along the pipeline route and across the state. This is a unique opportunity for our commonwealth. Since our founding in 1947, PAPGA has made education and safety our top priority. We appreciate the work DEP has done to review this project, and we’re happy with the agency’s vote of confidence, knowing that this pipeline will be developed responsibly and operated safely for the benefit of all Pennsylvania.”
