Equitrans Midstream’s Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP), which stretches 303 miles from Wetzel County, WV to Pittsylvania County, VA, is backed into a corner by anti-fossil fuelers. The project is 92% complete and in the ground, yet somehow antis have successfully blocked an Army Corps of Engineers Nationwide Permit 12 (NWP12) that allows the project to cross creeks and rivers and mud puddles. Antis convinced three leftist judges on the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn the NWP12 permit–twice. One of the ongoing issues the project faces are steep mountain passes in West Virginia.
