Groups Appeal Decision on Mountain Valley Pipeline Extension

The developers of the Mountain Valley Pipeline have requested, and received, an extension from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) of the time limit to complete construction.  

Several groups and individuals, including the West Virginia Highlands Conservancy, objected to the granting of the extension.  See the August, 2022, issue of The Highlands Voice for the details.

In spite of the objections, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission granted the extension.  Now the developers have another four years to complete the pipeline.  Now the groups have asked that FERC to reconsider its decision.

As a basis for the request, the groups say that FERC did not seriously consider their objections to the extension.  Even though they presented significant new information in their objections to the extension, FERC did not thoroughly evaluate that information.
