Energy Factoid: The Least US interstate natural gas pipeline capacity on record was added in 2022
If natural gas cannot be transported, it will not be produced, which of course is the plan of the anti-natural gas NGOs.
In 2022, 897 MMcfd of interstate natural gas pipeline capacity was added collectively from five projects, according to the latest US Energy Information Administration (EIA) State-to-State Capacity Tracker, the least since the agency began data collection in 1995.
One of the most essential interstate pipelines in the country that has been held up for years is the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP). FERC granted this pipeline its Natural Gas Act Certificate of Convenience and Necessity on October 13, 2017, and construction began in early 2018.
With an estimated 20 linear miles of pipe remaining, MVP’s total project work is nearly 94% complete.
This pipeline will serve electric utilities and other natural gas consumers in the mid-Atlantic and southeastern parts of the country.
