Sunoco May Have Plans for a Third Pipeline

During a recent public meeting, Sunoco released information about a possible plan for a third pipeline. As many are aware, Sunoco has been utilizing a pipeline which was placed into service in the mid 1930's. More recently, Sunoco started the process to construct a second pipeline referred to as Mariner East II. Sunoco is still in the process of acquiring the necessary right of ways for the Mariner East II Project. During the recent meeting, however, Sunoco advised that they are considering building two parallel pipelines as part of the Mariner East II Project while the original plans only contemplated one line as part of the project. That second line is the third line which is presently under consideration. Based on the most recent information of which we are aware, the third pipeline is not yet confirmed. Rather, Sunoco advised that, as of the meeting, they were still in the process of determining whether they have sufficient commitments to warrant the installation of the third line. Nevertheless, as a third pipeline is a possibility, we caution property owners to be cognizant of the easement and right of way terms proposed to them by Sunoco. The terms of the easement agreement will dictate whether any additional compensation is due or required if the additional line is sought or placed.
