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.
