The Equitrans Expansion Project (EEP or Project) is designed to transport up to 600,000 dekatherms per day (Dth/day) of natural gas from production supply in the central Appalachian Basin, to the growing demand generated by local distribution companies, industrial users, and power generation facilities located in local, northeastern, Mid-Atlantic and southeastern regions of the United States. The proposed Project would utilize existing interconnects, including Texas Eastern Transmission, LP and Dominion Transmission, Inc., as well as a proposed future interconnect and tap with Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC.
The pipeline and compressor station assets related to the expansion project will be operated by Equitrans, LP (Equitrans) – a wholly owned subsidiary of EQT Midstream Partners, LP, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Equitrans has significant experience in designing, building, and operating natural gas pipelines in the Appalachian region, including extensive natural gas gathering, storage, and transmission operations that service western Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia.
EQT Midstream Partners, LP (Partnership) is a growth-oriented limited partnership formed by EQT Corporation (EQT) to own, operate, acquire, and develop midstream assets in the Appalachian basin. The Partnership provides midstream services to EQT Corporation and third-parties, including transmission, storage, and gathering assets that span 21 counties throughout Pennsylvania and West Virginia. The Partnership owns 700 miles and operates an additional 200 miles of FERC-regulated interstate pipelines, and also owns more than 1,500 miles of high-and low-pressure gathering lines.
