The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection issued another notice of violation to Energy Transfer Partners LP’s Sunoco Mariner East 2 natural gas liquids pipeline for spilling drilling fluid in a wetland, according to Rigzone.

The notification marked the 65th from the DEP since construction on the project began in February 2017. The DEP is following the same procedure it did with the other notices and requiring ETP to provide a report describing how it will clean the spill, among other things, before it will allow the company to restart drilling at the site.

Due to the stoppages, ETP had to move its completion date for the Mariner East 2 project from the third quarter of 2017 to the third quarter of 2018.
