The MVP is a natural gas pipeline that will traverse approximately 303 miles across West Virginia and Virginia, including the West Virginia counties of Wetzel, Harrison, Doddridge, Lewis, Braxton, Webster, Nicholas, Greenbrier, Fayette, Summers, and Monroe. Three types of economic benefits would occur from the construction and operation of the MVP project. These benefits include:
Construction Spending Benefits: Expenditures on goods and services in the State would translate into job creation; economic benefits to West Virginia suppliers, their employees, and the overall economy; and new tax revenues.
Operational Benefits: Once in service, the project would require a skilled workforce to operate and maintain the pipeline. Also, it would generate annual property tax revenues for the counties, providing an additional stream of funds.
Direct-Use Benefits: The State and counties would benefit from the potential direct use of gas from the MVP project. The project would enhance gas service already available, help enable new gas service, and expand opportunities for commercial and manufacturing activities.
