Survey Work Continues

More than 85% of landowners along the pipeline route have granted permission for ACP crews to survey their property. The Atlantic Coast Pipeline has notified landowners along a 300-foot wide study corridor and the team continues work to refine the proposed route. Crews are surveying and obtaining information from affected landowners along the current, proposed path to determine the best route with least impacts to the environment, and historic and cultural resources. Visit our Maps page for the latest route updates.

Meetings and Stakeholder Consultation

The ACP team is consulting with stakeholders throughout all phases of the project: planning, permitting, construction and operations. We have identified and engaged parties who have an interest in the project and will continue to provide stakeholders — including affected landowners, occupants, tenants, and local state and federal government agencies and officials — with timely information about the project.

FERC Status

On May 13, 2016, Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC (Atlantic) submitted a Supplemental Filing that includes Visual Impact Assessment, recent agency correspondence, and a draft contingency plan for the proposed crossing of the Appalachian Trail and Blue Ridge Parkway. In April, the ACP project team filed the final portion of our response to FERC’s environmental data requests. FERC has issued a Supplemental Notice of Intent (SNOI) to issue an Environmental Impact Statement and opened a supplemental scoping period to gather feedback on recent route adjustments.  The scoping period is open until June 10.  Once the scoping period ends, FERC will have all of the information needed to determine and publish the schedule for the remainder of the environmental review process.

EnergySure: Standing up for Reliable Energy

EnergySureThe EnergySure coalition is a group of businesses, organizations and individuals across North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia and beyond that is standing up for reliable energy in our region. The ACP partners — Dominion, Duke, Piedmont, and AGL — have sponsored the coalition to provide a platform for informed discussions about the project.

Any business, organization or individual who is willing to stand up for reliable energy for our region — and understand the ACP’s important role in meeting our growing energy needs — is encouraged to join.

Powering the Future

Imagine creating new jobs, maintaining cleaner air, and providing lower prices to heat and power homes and businesses. Imagine using domestic and abundant resources of natural gas for underserved areas.

This is the basis for Atlantic proposing to build the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP). Atlantic is the company formed by four major, regionally based energy companies; Dominion, Duke energy, Piedmont Natural Gas and AGL Resources to develop, construct and operate ACP.  View our fact book, "Powering the Future."
