    We all know the nation needs to look to the future for energy production; however, we must NOT BURN our BRIDGES BEHIND US! Don’t stop current production until future sources (renewable) have been reliable and sufficient to meet the nation’s needs.

    About the project

    In April 2022, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission amended Mountain Valley Pipeline's 2017 Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity, supporting project completion under water bodies with specific construction methods. MVP, which is already 94% complete, still needs authorization from other agencies for work in remaining streams and wetlands.

    Project developers plan to apply for two environmental permits to replace those that were struck down in court and are hopeful that with permits in hand, this critical natural gas project can restart construction by the second quarter of 2023.

    With a vast supply of natural gas from Marcellus and Utica shale production, MVP is expected to provide up to two million dekatherms per day of firm transmission capacity to markets in the Mid- and South Atlantic regions of the U.S.

    Pledge To Be An Energy Voter

    With the right leadership and vision, we can ensure all Americans benefit from our nation’s emergence as an energy leader. It’s time to fulfill our bright energy future; it’s time to vote for candidates that support Local 798 jobs and the work that we do.

    Join Local 798 by signing the petition and becoming an Energy Voter.

    I understand the urgent need for clean, affordable and domestically sourced energy in my community, across my state and in throughout the nation. That is why I stand with political candidates and elected officials who show their support for an energy pipeline network that will safely and efficiently transport the nation’s abundant supply of domestic natural gas and oil supplies.

    America is leading the world in oil and natural gas production. Working together, we can do even more. Producing, refining and transporting more domestic oil and natural gas will mean more abundant energy – and that means more affordable energy for American families and businesses.

    We know there is enough potential domestic energy to serve all residential, business and industrial needs across the country. Yet, support for critical energy infrastructure is lacking among our political leaders.

    To support my livelihood, my family and my community, I will enter the voting booth informed about how political leaders stand on the issue of energy infrastructure development. I will do my part to help elect leaders who recognize the tremendous benefits of and need to grow our energy transportation network and who support the union workforce that will build it.

    Sincerely,

    American Energy Industry Supporter
