On July 5, 2020, we announced the cancellation of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP). This underground transmission line was designed to transport natural gas supplies from West Virginia to public utilities in Virginia and North Carolina to generate cleaner electricity, heat homes, and power local businesses.
Over the last several months, we’ve worked closely with landowners and agencies to develop the most responsible approach for concluding the project with minimal environmental disturbance. On December 18, 2020, we submitted our proposed project Disposition and Restoration Plan to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC). It provides a detailed framework for concluding the project over the next 24 months.
We are currently working with local, state, and federal agencies to determine all permitting requirements for project closure activity. Once we receive all necessary permits, we will then seek final FERC authorization to begin the work. Please click here to access additional documents on FERC’s website.
Landowners have already received initial communications regarding first steps. For further questions, landowners should contact their land agent directly.
