Mountain Valley Pipe Asks FERC for 2-Yr Extension to Finish Project

It’s been an uphill battle to complete Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP), a 303-mile Marcellus/Utica gas pipeline from Wetzel County, WV to Pittsylvania County, VA. The project has been vigorously opposed by radical environmentalists from the beginning. Frivolous lawsuit after frivolous lawsuit has been filed by Big Green groups bankrolled by billionaires. Finally in June Equitrans, the builder, said they should be able to complete the 92% done pipeline by next spring (see Mountain Valley Pipe Will be Done and In-Service Early 2021). That is now in doubt. MVP made an official request with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to extend the completion deadline by an extra two years.
