Sunbury Pipeline

Sunbury Pipeline, LLC has stated it has the power of eminent domain as a public utility corporation under the Pennsylvania Business Corporation Law. Faherty Law Firm represents multiple property owners threatened by the pipeline. Mike Faherty has advised Sunbury Pipeline that the pipeline which is progressing with an application to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), is under FERC, not state, jurisdiction. Faherty asserts that the argument for current state eminent domain is misguided. Faherty, noted that the FERC approval of eminent domain power is expected near the end of 2015, but has not yet been provided.
