Atlantic Coast Pipeline

Imagine creating new jobs, maintaining cleaner air, and providing lower prices to heat and power homes and businesses. Imagine providing access to domestic and abundant sources of natural gas for underserved areas. This and more is why four regionally based energy companies have come together to propose the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).

Dominion, Duke Energy, Piedmont Natural Gas and AGL Resources have formed the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC to develop, own, construct and operate the pipeline.

Survey Work Continues

More than 80% 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 19, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC filed 12 draft Environmental Resource Reports. Visit our FERC Filings and Information page to review these reports.  

On May 12, the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC filed Responses to Public Comments on the Issues to Address in the Environmental Impact Statement.

On February 27, 2015, FERC issued a Notice of Intent to Prepare an Environmental Impact Statement. Ten Scoping Meetings were held and thousands of comments were submitted before the scoping period ended on April 28, 2015. FERC will continue to accept comments throughout the term of the project.

On November 13, 2014, the FERC granted authorization to begin the pre-filing process. This process allows multiple opportunities for stakeholders to learn about the project and provide input.
