Supply Header Project


Dominion Energy is proposing to construct and operate approximately 37.5 miles of natural gas pipeline and modify existing compression facilities in West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

The project, referred to as the Supply Header Project (SHP), will provide natural gas supplies to various customers, allowing the transport of natural gas from supply areas in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia to market areas in Virginia and North Carolina.

One of the main customers will be Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC (Atlantic) — a company formed by four major U.S. energy companies — Dominion Energy, Duke Energy, Piedmont Natural Gas and Southern Company Gas — which is proposing to construct the Atlantic Coast Pipeline in West Virginia, Virginia and North Carolina.

New pipeline will primarily be constructed along existing pipeline rights of way and will include 3.9 miles of 30-inch-diameter pipeline in Westmoreland County, PA, and 33.6 miles of 30-inch-diameter pipeline in Harrison, Doddridge, Tyler and Wetzel counties in West Virginia. The cost of the Supply Header Project will be about $500 million.

Modifications and facility upgrades will be made at Dominion Energy’s existing compressor stations in Westmoreland and Greene counties in Pennsylvania, and Marshall and Wetzel counties in West Virginia. These modifications will result in approximately 69,200 horsepower of additional compression.
