Philadelphia Energy Solutions (PES) has issued the following statement regarding a Recommended Decision by a Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission (PUC) administrative law judge that the full commission reject a proposal by Buckeye Partners to reverse the flow of the Laurel Pipeline.

The recommendation now goes to the full PUC for consideration.

“We applaud the decision made by Administrative Law Judge Eranda Vero recommending the PUC deny Buckeye Partner’s application for the reversal of the Laurel Pipeline. Since 1957, the Laurel Pipeline’s east-to-west flow has ensured dependable, safe and low-cost pipeline access to refined fuel products for Western Pennsylvania. Today’s recommendation is a step in the right direction for Pennsylvania consumers, who will continue to benefit from lower prices at the pump. We urge the PUC to put Pennsylvania first by upholding today’s recommendation and rule in favour of Pennsylvania consumers, communities and businesses.”

Philadelphia Energy Solutions Refining and Marketing LLC (PESRM) owns and operates the Point Breeze and Girard Point oil refineries located on an integrated, 1300 acre refining complex in Philadelphia. The 335 000 bpd of combined capacity makes PESRM the largest refining complex on the Eastern Seaboard.
