Sep. 10, 2020: Not all pipeline projects are the same. Not all pipeline companies are the same. FERC should properly examine this case and not simply grant this extension.
The Mountain Valley Pipeline project is far from being completed. In Virginia, according to MVP reports filed with FERC, MVP has completed about 80% clearing; 84% right-of-way preparation; 65% trenching, welding, coating and wrapping; 70% stringing; 54% backfilling and tying-in; and 15% final restoration.
FERC has a great opportunity here - the opportunity to right a wrong. Commissioners can prevent further harm to the communities along the MVP route by denying this request for an extension.
