Atlantic Coast Pipeline Project
The Atlantic Coast Pipeline interstate project proposes the installation of a natural gas pipeline that will run through eight North Carolina counties as it crosses the state from the Virginia border to South Carolina. A March 23 stakeholder meeting was held by the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality to provide information and receive feedback on the project. Staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission have prepared a draft environmental impact statement for the pipeline. The project was proposed by Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC, Dominion Transmission, Inc. and Piedmont Natural Gas Co., Inc. The draft environmental impact statement is linked below, along with information from the March 23 meeting and the various state permitting programs that have oversight of the project's review. Updates on the comments received, permit applications and the review process will be posted here as they become available.
