Utility agreements signed for proposed Atlantic Coast Pipeline

Dominion Energy Inc. confirms that purchase agreements have been signed for almost all of the natural gas that would be delivered to the US Southeast by the proposed $5 billion Atlantic Coast Pipeline project, according to the Associated Press.

Once completed, the 600-mile energy project will deliver fracked natural gas along a route from West Virginia, through Virginia and into North Carolina. Purchase agreements are in place for 96% of the pipeline’s capacity.

Dominion is partnering with Duke Energy and other energy companies to build the pipeline, which has an anticipated in-service date of late 2018, pending regulatory and other approvals.
