June 16th, 2024 by WCBC Radio

After 10 years of planning and navigating numerous delays and environmental protests the Mountain Valley Pipeline began operations Friday, transporting natural gas from northern West Virginia southeast to eastern markets.  The pipeline gained final approval to operate earlier this week from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.

According to the company, the project is a natural gas pipeline system that spans about 300 miles from northwestern West Virginia to southern Virginia and is expected to provide up to 2 billion cubic feet per day of firm transmission capcity to markets in the mid- and south Atlantic regions of the United States.
