On July 10, 2020, Dominion Energy Transmission requested a two year extension from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to complete portions of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) and the Supply Header Pipeline Project (SHP).
An order dated October 13, 2017, from FERC gave Dominion and others the right to build and operate the ACP and the SHP projects. The July request notes that on June 16, 2020, Dominion had requested a two-year extension of time to complete the construction of both the ACP and the SHP.
The request went on to note that on July 5 of this year Dominion and Duke Energy cancelled the ACP project and are now working on abandonment and restoration plans for which a one-year extension to complete that work was requested.
They went on to say that given the fact that 31% of SHP project’s mainline pipe having been installed and support facilities constructed and the proximity of SHP to Dominion’s existing pipelines, they would like to reaffirm their request for the 2 year extension in order to be able to consider using part of the SHP project with their existing infrastructure.
The SHP project was a 37.5 mile, 30-inch pipeline that Dominion and Duke Energy had planned to run from Mockingbird Station in Wetzel County through Tyler and Doddridge Counties to join with the ACP project at the Harrison and Doddridge County line.
