The Pennsylvania Petroleum Association and Pennsylvania Propane Gas Association will be hosting an emergency planning exercise on October 11, 2023. The exercise will be facilitated by our state agency partners for the purpose of strengthening the Pennsylvania State Energy Security Plan (SESP). Other stakeholders who rely on the interdependency of liquid fuels throughout the Commonwealth will also participate in the exercise.
It’s the festive holiday season and bitter cold has lingered in Pennsylvania and the Northeastern United States for the past several days. Dropping temperatures are predicted over the holiday while the electric grid operator is projecting record breaking usage. How will fuel companies provide for their customers as temperatures continue to drop? Join us as we delve into this scenario and try to prevent a Christmas Lights Out.
Participating associations would like to ensure all segments of the fuel industry are represented as a part of the exercise. Proposed representation would include: Heating Fuel & Propane Marketers, Motor Fuel Distributors, Retail Gasoline Stations, Common Carriers, Fuel Wholesalers, Terminal Operators, Pipeline Operators, Refiners/Producers, Alternative Fuel Stakeholders
