Mariner East 2 is in service and moving the natural gas liquids we rely on to heat our homes, fuel our barbecues and make many of the products we use every day. We are making great progress constructing our Mariner East 2X pipeline.
In areas where installation of both pipelines is complete, restoration crews are hard at work cleaning up the right-of-way and getting it back to the condition it was in before we were there — sometimes even better!
During restoration, fences are replaced, vegetation is reseeded and any property impacted during construction is repaired. Inspectors are on-site to ensure appropriate steps are taken to meet all of the strict conditions of our Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection permits.
In some cases, we work with landowners and environmental agencies to enhance restoration, such as planting trees along streams and managing invasive species.
We are making tremendous progress moving from west to east along our Mariner East pipeline right-of-way. In Washington and Allegheny counties we are done with mainline restoration, and we continue to make progress in Westmoreland, Cambria and Indiana counties.
In Blair, Huntingdon, Juniata and Perry counties, we have completed 80 percent of mainline restoration. In Cumberland, York and Dauphin counties, we are 82 percent complete.
In Lebanon, Lancaster and Berks counties, we have completed 86 percent of mainline restoration. We continue to make progress in areas of Chester and Delaware counties where both pipelines are installed.
Once construction and restoration are complete, it is hard to tell that a pipeline is underground, except for the visible yellow pipeline markers, and that’s our goal!
