Mountain Valley Pipeline to Host Series of Open Houses
December 16, 2014
The Roanoke Times reports that Mountain Valley Pipeline LLC will be hosting 14 “community open houses” in several counties throughout the region where they have proposed a 300-mile interstate natural gas pipeline. If approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), the pipeline will deliver natural gas produced from wells in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio to Pittsylvania County, Virginia. Mountain Valley spokesperson Natalie Cox stated that up to 30 representatives from Mountain Valley who are subject matter experts in their particular area of the project will be present at the open-houses. The first four open-houses are scheduled for this week and will consist of various stations focused on specific topics as opposed to formal presentations. Representatives from FERC will also be in attendance to answer questions about the proposed pipeline.
