Many of you are familiar with UGI Energy Services, especially those who attended the Midstream 2014 Conference. UGI has always made its officials available to speak and/or exhibit at industry events. It has worked very hard to keep local businesses like yourself aware of the opportunities for you at UGI and the PennEast Pipeline could be a big opportunity for many of you.
To make the PennEast Pipeline happen, your support is needed. Here’s the background information on the pipeline.
UGI Energy Services is a partner in the PennEast Pipeline, which will extend from Luzerne County, Pennsylvania, and end in Mercer County, New Jersey. The benefits of the PennEast Pipeline Project are numerous ($1.6 billion economic impact, 12,000+ jobs, roughly $900 million in consumer savings, increased reliability in eastern PA and NJ), but for these and many other benefits to be realized, PennEast Pipeline needs our support.

Letter of Support: PennEast Pipeline Project PF15-1-000
The vocal opposition of a few should not be generalized as the common opinion of many. I, like many of my neighbors, colleagues and friends, welcome responsible natural gas development and recognize the PennEast Pipeline Project as crucial to the region. As such, I would like to add my voice to those who support the PennEast Pipeline Project.
The presence of large quantities of accessible natural gas in our region cannot be ignored. With current state-of-the-art technologies and diligent oversight to ensure established safety protocols are followed, this natural gas resource must be developed and put to good use for the benefit of homes and businesses.
I proudly encourage environmentally responsible exploration, safe drilling, efficient transportation and proper maintenance of our natural gas resources. This will ensure that our energy needs will be met well into the future in an environmentally and sound economical manner.
Beyond the logic of putting our own resources at a higher priority than those controlled by often hostile foreign energy suppliers, I point to the growing needs of our local economy. The PennEast Pipeline Project not only will deliver a safe, reliable, affordable supply of natural gas, it will do so with a $1.6 billion economic benefit during its design and construction and provide annual energy savings of close to $900 million per year to Pennsylvania and New Jersey consumers. These are major economic benefits for many of our local and regional families, communities and businesses.
As someone who knows firsthand the benefits of all that natural gas makes possible, I ask you to approve the PennEast Project. Thank you.
