Sunoco Pipeline has provided owners with Exhibit B plans/maps showing easement rights beyond the boundaries of rights as provided in old easements. When challenged, Sunoco Pipeline has at times revised the asserted rights to areas contained within prior prior easements. Property owners are cautioned that Sunoco Pipeline has frequently recorded Memorandums of Additional Line Rights without notice to the property owners. Property owners should check with the County Recorder of Deeds.
The Commonwealth Court has affirmed a Cumberland County Case and a Lebanon County case providing eminent domain power to Sunoco Pipeline for the Mariner East 2 Pipeline.
