Sunoco Pipeline Construction Activity

NOTICE TO RESIDENTS: Sunoco Pipeline will be conducting 24-hour construction activities this week in the area of Gamble Lane. Work is scheduled to start on Thursday night, June 1, and last three days. The schedule is subject to change due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances. The activity will include lighting and truck traffic, welding, and movement and installation of pipe. Sunoco has taken measures to avoid disruption; sound barriers have been erected at the site to mitigate noise, and lighting will be directed away from residences. Gamble Lane is scheduled to be closed to traffic from Thursday through Saturday. Sunoco Pipeline has established a 24-hour help line at (855) 430-4491 for residents with questions or concerns.

Rumor has it Sunoco is going to stop using the existing 80 year old gas main known as Mariner East 1 running down Pennell Rd. because of the possible risk to the community. Sunoco’s Mariner East 1 natural gas liquids pipeline leaked about 20 barrels of ethane and propane near Morgantown, Berks County, on April 1, the company said on Thursday. If you use natural gas or propane you must convert to oil, wood,solar, or wind power for your needs.
Meanwhile the new pipeline is going in as scheduled so other countries can buy the ethane,propane and butane to keep their citizens from freezing to death and they can continue to enjoy grilled horse,dog, cat, or whatever meat they choose.

Also if you live near any of the existing pipelines that will be closing, the value of your home will skyrocket. Here is the map in case you don't have a clue.

Letter to the Editor: This is not the same kind of pipeline
POSTED: 06/06/17, 8:32 PM EDT | UPDATED: 2 HRS AGO 0 COMMENTS

To the Times:

Delaware County residents need to learn the truth about the Sunoco Logistics Mariner East Two pipeline for the following four reasons:

• The contents of this pipeline are new and different. The natural gas liquids will not heat a home, fuel a car or add to energy independence. If a leak occurs, the contents will convert to an odorless, highly explosive, asphyxiating gas and drift with the wind until it finds an ignition source such as a vehicle, cell phone or door bell.

• This pipeline does not benefit the public and may still be denied eminent domain status. Since this product is intended to cross Pennsylvania, only to be shipped to Europe for plastic manufacturing, very few Delaware County residents will ever be hired. As you sit in road blocks, look carefully at truck license plates. They are out of state and those jobs are temporary.

Several legal cases have been filed and need your financial support.


• This pipeline could cause injuries and death beyond the capabilities of our first responders. Sunoco Logistics can, and will, pour millions of dollars into a public relations campaign that falsely claims safety measures, but their record is poor and they’ve already experienced leaks in Chester Creek – our local watershed. They are far from infallible and professional risk assessment suggests it is not if, but when, we will pay for a leak.

• This pipeline has no significant federal or state oversight. It is up to local municipal officials to enforce their existing code and support their neighboring towns. The wealthy fossil fuel companies are committed to transporting their dangerous products through our back yards and public parks to Marcus Hook, now and in the near future.

It's being shipped down to Hook for export, not to be used domestically.

I understand it is for export. Is why I stated,"Meanwhile the new pipeline is going in as scheduled so other countries can buy the ethane,propane and butane" I also know it will not be stopped. In case you didn't know, all permits have been secured. The lawsuits will cause Sunoco to raise the price of fuels used here to pay for any litigation. Talk about a few fear mongers shooting themselves in the foot!

Yes, they, state/local government, sold us out for grants/funding & 'contributions'.
