Sunoco Update

July 5, 2018 Sunoco Update

  • Sunoco intends to start the open cut pipe installation in front of Giant Supermarket on Boot Road in the near future.
  • Sunoco is in the process of reevaluating all of the Horizontal Direction Drills (HDDs). Sunoco does not know how long this will take.
  • In June Sunoco advised Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHSMA) that they intend to use the existing 12” line to transport Natural Gas Liquids (NGLs).  This line is currently used to transport other petroleum products. They need to give PHSMA a 60 day notice so they intend start transporting NGLs in mid to late August. This will reduce the pressure to complete the Mariner East 2 and Mariner East 2X pipelines.
