For-Profit Pipeline Company Sunoco Claims “Public Benefit” in Seizing Private Lands in Pennsylvania | DeSmogBlog

The potential windfall for Sunoco may be the reason for what opponents say are strong arm tactics to seize private property in the path of the pipeline extension, tactics that include invoking eminent domain, even though it’s a private, for-profit company rather than a government entity, and even though, they say, it has not proven that the pipeline would contribute a “public benefit.”

Both conditions are traditionally required for landowners to forfeit property in eminent domain disputes. Sunoco argues that their use of eminent domain is justified because Mariner East II will provide a public benefit by providing extra propane to residents in offload points throughout the state.
