On Tuesday, October 27, 2015, Equitrans, LP, an indirect subsidiary of EQT Midstream Partners, LP, filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) requesting a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity to construct and operate the proposed Equitrans Expansion Project (EEP), and was assigned Docket Number: CP16-13-000.

Through this formal certificate application filing, the FERC is being asked to certify the public convenience and necessity of the EEP by conducting a detailed review and evaluation of a broad number of subjects, including public safety; water resources; air quality; wildlife, soils, and vegetation; protected species; cultural and historic resources; and sound levels. Subject to regulatory approvals, construction is anticipated to begin in late 2016, with a full in-service targeted for the fourth quarter 2018.
