The Pennsylvania Energy Infrastructure Alliance (PEIA) has marked its two year anniversary by premiering a new video that showcases the required skillsets and intense training of workers who ensure the safe, responsible development of pipelines and related energy infrastructure projects that are helping to fuel the commonwealth's economic revitalisation.
The skills training video is an extension of the online series that PEIA launched at its inception to inform residents about the role modern energy infrastructure systems play in growing the economy and protecting the environment and to highlight the direct and indirect beneficiaries of pipeline investments by letting individuals and groups tell their stories uninterrupted.
The two year anniversary video focuses on safe development as some key pipeline projects, including Sunoco's Mariner East 2 project, have moved from the planning phase to construction, and as others, such as Atlantic Sunrise, could begin construction later this year.
Ensuring the safe, responsible development of these pipeline projects are organisations like Boilermakers Local 13, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), International Union of Operating Engineers (IUOE), Laborers International Union of North America (LiUNA), and Pipefitters and Steamfitters, all of which are members of PEIA.
PEIA so far has produced more than two dozen videos, with more in production.
Beyond the videos, PEIA members have crisscrossed Pennsylvania to support pipeline projects and promote private investments that will help to build out the state's infrastructure network, which currently is inadequate to deliver Marcellus and Utica gas products to market.
