The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission approved a settlement related to a pipeline failure and fire in Beaver County involving the "Revolution Pipeline."

A Common Pleas Court held its first hearing to determine whether Columbia Gas can put a pipeline through preserved farmland in Union County, Ohio.

The Pennsylvania DEP fined Sunoco Pipeline’s Mariner East 2 pipeline $85,666 for violations in four counties. According to the DEP, Sunoco spilled more than 400 gallons of drilling fluids into wetlands in Blair, Cumberland and Juniata counties and a creek in Lebanon County.

Preliminary results of an Ohio State University study show that pipeline installation on farmland negatively impacts crop yields. Soils within the right-of-way also had more rock fragments, lower soil moisture and a higher resistance to penetration, which indicates some amount of soil compaction.

The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration found damage to two pieces of pipe, but could not substantiate a whistleblower’s claims that the pipeline had been built with a defective corrosion coating.

Sunoco Pipeline agreed to pay $497,000 to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for spilling drilling fluids into a Lebanon County creek.

More than two years after the Revolution pipeline exploded in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, it is back in service. 

The Pennsylvania DEP issued a $30.6 million penalty to ETC Northeast Pipeline for violations related to the 2018 Revolution Pipeline explosion and fire.

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection issued a nearly $2 million penalty to Sunoco Pipeline for violations at a central Pennsylvania lake.

Pipeline safety engineers from the Bureau of Investigation & Enforcement (I&E) are continuing to investigate an incident in Clarion County.
