Last year, Energy Transfer, the parent company of Sunoco, was held criminally responsible for dozens of charges related to Mariner East and the 2018 explosion of the Revolution pipeline near Pittsburgh.
The sinkhole occurred in the area of Lisa Drive, West Whiteland Township, where multiple sinkholes first appeared during construction of the pipeline in March 2018.
Among other things, Energy Transfer will spend $10 million to restore waterways damaged by its construction.
Sunoco Pipeline LP, the developer of a multi-billion-dollar pipeline that traverses southern Pennsylvania should have done more to protect the safety of more than 200 residents of an apartment complex.

Construction of the Mariner East 2 pipeline was paused after Sunoco spilled thousands of gallons of drilling mud into Marsh Creek Lake in the summer of 2020.
