Panel Favors Equitrans in Hammerhead Natgas Pipeline Dispute with EQT

Equitrans has said Hammerhead cost about $555 million to build. EQT, the biggest U.S. gas producer and former parent of Equitrans, has a contract to transport about 1.2 Bcf/d on Hammerhead.


U.S. pipeline company Equitrans Midstream Corp. said on Oct. 26 that an arbitration panel ruled in its favor in a dispute with EQT Corp. over the delayed startup of the Hammerhead natural gas pipe in Pennsylvania and West Virginia.

Hammerhead is a gathering pipeline designed to feed about 1.6 Bcf/d of gas into the Mountain Valley pipe once that long-delayed project enters service.

Equitrans said the 2-Bcf/d Mountain Valley pipe from West Virginia to Virginia was on track to enter service in the summer of 2022 at a cost of around $6.2 billion.
