Almost seven years have passed since Energy Transfer first introduced the Mariner East projects to Nottingham Township officials. In the 78 months since, over 600 miles of project pipeline was strung across the state, and two major natural gas liquids lines have been commissioned. Over that time, township officials got to know various members of the project team well.
Township Supervisor Doug King expressed a mutual sense of respect to the Energy Transfer and the contractors who worked on the projects, highlighting a pleasant experience he had in September with members of the Energy Transfer road restoration contractors at Munntown Road.
“I’ve had a great relationship with your company and your contractors over the years,” said King. “The permitting team that I’ve dealt with frequently was especially attentive and always worked very quickly to address our needs.”
Over the course of the discussion, Koop provided photos of rights-of-way depicting various stages of restoration and reiterated the company’s obligation to restore vegetation to at least 70 percent growth, according to state earth disturbance permits.
“What tonight represents is the culmination of six years of active Mariner East construction,” said Energy Transfer Community Affairs Lead Chris Koop. “We want to thank the Board of Supervisors and the community in Nottingham for your good will and patience.” ”
In concluding his remarks, Koop added, “While we are for the most part fully complete in the township, it doesn’t mean we’re going away. I am still your primary contact with the company, and our operations personnel will be ready to respond to you as well.”
