Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS - By Marc Levy

HAR­RIS­BURG, PA. >> Penn­syl­va­nia is halt­ing con­struc­tion per­mits for nat­u­ral gas pipe­lines op­er­ated by Texas-based En­ergy Trans­fer LP, say­ing the com­pany isn’t fix­ing prob­lems re­lated to an ex­plo­sion last year.

The state Depart­ment of En­vi­ron­men­tal Pro­tec­tion said Fri­day that En­ergy Trans­fer hasn’t sta­bi­lized the earth and ero­sion around its Revo­lu­tion pipe­line in western Penn­syl­va­nia. The meth­ane gas ex­plo­sion de­stroyed one home in Beaver County last Septem­ber.

En­ergy Trans­fer’s pipe­lines in Penn­syl­va­nia in­clude the Mariner East 1, 2 and 2X across south­ern Penn­syl­va­nia. The projects have drawn mil­lions in fines and sev­eral tem­po­rary shut­down or­ders from state agen­cies.

En­ergy Trans­fer says it is com­mit­ted to bring­ing the Revo­lu­tion pipe­line into full com­pli­ance.
