As proposed, the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) project 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). The MVP will be constructed and owned by Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC, which is a joint venture of EQT Midstream Partners, LP; NextEra US Gas Assets, LLC; Con Edison Transmission, Inc. ; WGL Midstream; and RGC Midstream, LLC. EQT Midstream Partners will operate the pipeline and own a significant interest in the joint venture.
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. The MVP will extend the Equitrans transmission system in Wetzel County, West Virginia, to Transcontinental Gas Pipeline Company’s (Transco) Zone 5 compressor station 165 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia.
The pipeline will be governed by the United States Natural Gas Act, which requires a Certificate of Convenience and Necessity from the FERC before construction can commence. 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.
*ALERT – Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC has been made aware that Virginia landowners along MVP's proposed pipeline route are receiving what we believe to be scam survey access letters from an alleged entity named Mountains to Sea Pipeline Corp. Mountain Valley Pipeline has no affiliation with any organization by that name, nor has MVP's initial investigation revealed the existence of any entity by this name registered to do business in Pennsylvania, the state in which the letter claims the entity is located. Based on MVP's review, we believe the letters to contain false information, including the use of an MVP-related phone number in the letter. We suggest that if you receive a similar letter, you verify the sender and contact information before taking further action. If you suspect mail fraud, you can contact the United States Postal Service's Postal Inspection Service hotline at 877-876-2455. You can also alert MVP at 844-MVP-TALK or email us at email@example.com.
