Equitrans LP, subsidiary of Mountain Valley Pipeline lead developer Equitrans Midstream Corp., has proposed construction of the Ohio Valley Connector Expansion project. The project includes natural gas transmission pipeline and aboveground facilities in Wetzel County WV, Greene County PA and Monroe County OH.
The project would add 83 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent and 6 tons of particulate matter, to the 74 tons of carbon dioxide equivalent and nearly 11 tons of particulate matter, in annual emissions from operations at the existing Corona Compressor Station.
48-acres of tree clearing expected for the project.
