The project includes the construction of pipeline and a fractionation facility.[1]

Construction work on the Revolution Pipeline, which originates from the northern Butler County, was completed in February 2018 and it came online on Sep 3 of 2018. Later in September of 2018 an explosion occurred on the pipeline in Beaver County, PA. While the incident resulted in the evacuation of many local residents, nobody got injured from the explosion. One home, located nearly 500 feet from the occurrence of the blast, was destroyed in the fire. Energy Transfer closed the valves on the Revolution Pipeline following the explosion. Although a thorough inspection to find out the reason behind the blast is in the process, initially it was suspected that the major rainfall in the region caused a landslide, which might have contributed to the incident.[4]
