About the project

In late 2021, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection issued a key permit for the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) to finish work crossing rivers and streams in West Virginia. As of the time of permit approval, MVP was 94% complete. The remaining portions include river and stream crossings in West Virginia and Virginia and require permits from three sources: The U.S. Army of Corps of Engineers, the Virginia Water Control Board and the West Virginia DEP.

As proposed, MVP is a natural gas pipeline system that spans approximately 303 miles from northwestern West Virginia to southern Virginia – and as an interstate pipeline will be regulated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).

With a vast supply of natural gas from Marcellus and Utica shale production, the Mountain Valley Pipeline 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 United States.

As currently planned, the pipeline will be up to 42 inches in diameter and will require approximately 50 feet of permanent easement (with 125 feet of temporary easement during construction). In addition, the project will require three compressor stations, with identified locations in Wetzel, Braxton, and Fayette counties of West Virginia.

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.
