“The 100-mile pipeline proposed by UGI and its partners will unlock the promise of Marcellus Shale and create thousands of family-sustaining jobs by getting the gas to the factories and homes that need this affordable source of fuel,” said David W. Patti, president & CEO of the Pennsylvania Business Council. “With more than 130 years of history delivering natural gas safely and reliably to Pennsylvania and Mid-Atlantic communities, UGI is perfectly suited to develop and manage this nearly $1 billion infrastructure investment.”

“Natural gas is a tremendous resource that has helped expand business opportunities across Pennsylvania. To harness the long-term potential of this industry, we need to focus on getting more of this gas to markets – both in-state and out. The PennEast Pipeline will help keep overall energy costs down while further creating solid family-sustaining jobs throughout the state.”

“The United States is the envy of the world for the sheer magnitude of our shale gas resources-and for our pipeline, distribution and storage system. We have studied closely current and future demand patterns and understand where challenges remain. We strongly support efforts to build more needed infrastructure to get our vast domestic natural gas supplies to market. New infrastructure will help communities across the country reap the full benefits that natural gas offers.”

“The PennEast Pipeline project further demonstrates the far-reaching regional benefits of shale development. UGI is a leader in leveraging the proximity of its customer base to the Marcellus Shale – the nation’s largest and most productive shale formation in the United States. Because of this project, more consumers in the mid-Atlantic region will experience considerable cost-savings. PennEast, led by Pennsylvania and New Jersey consumer-focused companies, will not only create good paying jobs, it will deliver clean energy in a safe, cost-effective and responsible manner.”

“Pennsylvania’s natural gas revolution is giving our manufacturers new momentum with abundant cost-competitive energy. Since 2008, natural gas prices in Pennsylvania have decreased by approximately 40%. However, to fully realize the potential of shale gas, Pennsylvania needs robust infrastructure for transmission, especially more pipeline. Please know that the Pennsylvania Manufacturers’ Association strongly supports UGI Energy Services and their partners’ plan for the PennEast Pipeline.”

“As a labor-management organization dedicated to improving economic opportunities for contractors and members of Local 825, we view the PennEast Pipeline as a critical stimulus for our local economies.  Our members have become highly experienced in pipeline construction and this project could mean as many as 2,000 construction jobs during its seven-month construction phase.”

“Pennsylvania is blessed with an abundance of energy. Making that energy available to businesses and consumers through projects like the PennEast Pipeline is vital to long-term economic growth for the region. Building pipeline capacity improves reliability and keeps energy affordable. And in particular, it gives our manufacturing sector – and its high-paying jobs – a competitive edge over other parts of the country and world.”
