BLUEFIELD — Two natural gas pipelines originating in the state could mean economic benefits for all residents, local legislators say.

Both pipelines, Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) and Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP), will start in the Marcellus Formation shale fields in north central West Virginia.

The MVP is a 303-mile, 42-inch diameter, $3.5 billion line that will end in Chatham, Va. and run through both Monroe and Giles counties. The ACP is 600 miles long and will end in North Carolina.

Although the pipelines have faced stiff opposition from residents in many of the counties impacted, including Monroe and Giles counties, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has given both the green light.

Del. John Shott (R-Mercer County) said the lines will bring opportunities, not only for tax revenue but for other state uses.
