Equitrans Sees Mountain Valley Natgas Pipeline Entering Service Next Summer

When Mountain Valley construction started in February 2018, Equitrans estimated the 303-mile (488-km), 2.0 billion cubic feet per day project would cost about $3.5 billion and enter service by late 2018.

U.S. pipeline company Equitrans Midstream Corp. said on Nov. 2 the venture building the $6.2 billion Mountain Valley natural gas pipeline from West Virginia to Virginia still expects the project to enter service in the summer of 2022.

Mountain Valley is one of several U.S. pipelines delayed by regulatory and legal fights with environmental and local groups that found problems with federal permits issued during President Donald Trump's administration.
