Virginia’s Reports

“In order to compete globally to attract businesses and create jobs, Virginia must have world-class energy infrastructure that provides abundant access to low-cost energy sources. New natural gas pipelines, like the Mountain Valley Pipeline, will diversify our energy mix, reduce our Commonwealth’s carbon emissions, and help build a new Virginia economy.”

~ Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe

West Virginia’s Reports

“West Virginia continues to be one of our nation’s energy leaders, and the Mountain Valley Pipeline will help create new construction jobs for our workforce and identify markets for our state’s abundant supply of natural gas. We appreciate EQT’s continued investments in our state and their willingness to work with local economic developers to provide natural gas service in areas that would benefit from both new industry and downstream growth. These investments have the potential to create good-paying jobs and by keeping key byproducts in our state, we have the opportunity to rejuvenate our manufacturing sector and create promising opportunities for future generations.”

~ West Virginia Governor Earl Ray Tomblin
