The owners of the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) have repeatedly proclaimed that over 90% of the project has been completed, no doubt to bolster confidence from their investors and stockholders so that they continue investing. An examination by ABRA of the data reported by MVP to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission reveals that project completion claims are overstated. Only 51% of the 300-mile route has pipe in the ground and the ground above it restored. In Virginia, which has one-third of the MVP route, less than 15% of the route has undergone final restoration.
