Pennsylvania Fines Energy Transfer $2 Million for 2018 Natgas Pipe Blast

Pipelines owned by Dallas-based Energy Transfer have had multiple problems in recent years in Pennsylvania.


The Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) approved a nearly $2 million settlement with a unit of Energy Transfer LP for a pipeline explosion and fire at its Revolution natural gas pipe in Western Pennsylvania in 2018.

A portion of the 24-inch (61-centimeter) Revolution pipe failed after heavy rains caused a landslide in Center Township in Beaver County on Sept. 10, 2018. The fire destroyed a nearby home, damaged power lines and burned several acres of surrounding woodland, the PUC said in a release on Nov. 18.
