Charleston, W.Va. (October 14, 2017) – Anne Blankenship, executive director of the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association, issued the following statement today following the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) approval of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, the Supply Header Pipeline and the Mountain Valley Pipeline projects:
“WVONGA members greatly appreciate the FERC’s issuance of certificates for the Atlantic Coast, Supply Header and Mountain Valley pipeline projects. These crucially important projects have been planned and studied exhaustively for several years and will offer transportation for West Virginia-produced natural gas to markets across the southeast. This new infrastructure will allow our state to more fully develop its natural gas resources, leading to more jobs throughout the economy.

There is more natural gas being produced from the Marcellus and Utica shales than is necessary to meet the demand in the regions to which that gas is easily transported.
It is a problem that has been apparent for some time to those living in the regions — including the Mid-Ohio Valley — where the promised natural gas boom has stalled.
Charleston, W.Va. (Oct. 2, 2017) – Highlighting the tremendous potential for highway improvements that will lead to jobs and economic opportunity, the board of directors of the West Virginia Oil & Natural Gas Association (WVONGA) today issued a resolution of support for the “Roads to Prosperity” road bond amendment. The Roads to Prosperity Amendment will be voted on during a special referendum Oct. 7, and early voting is Sept. 22-Oct 4.
“West Virginians deserve a safe and efficient highway system and the thousands of jobs that will be created through passage of the Road’s to Prosperity initiative,” said Anne Blankenship, executive director of WVONGA. “Funding is already in place to support Governor Justice’s highway program and no new taxes will be needed. We encourage all natural gas industry workers, as well as all state voters, to support this initiative.”
In part, the resolution states:
The prospects for a West Virginia-based, underground ethane storage hub increased dramatically with Hurricane Harvey.
Fully 61 percent of U.S. ethylene production, the primary derivative of ethane and essential feedstock for the plastics industry, was shut down during the storm creating seismic supply chain disruptions in the downstream manufacturing sector.
