The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) received a December 11 request from the Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC (ACP,LLC) to permit it to conduct certain stabilization measures due to the company’s cessation of work on the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) in the wake of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals December 7 decision to stay the U.S.
The November 17 decision by the U.S. Forest Service to authorize the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) to cross the Monongahela and George Washington National Forests was met with strong statements of disagreement. ABRA released a statement to the media saying:
“We firmly disagree with the decision announced today by the U.S.
Objections filed with the U.S. Forest Service (USFS) to the agency’s Draft Decision Document to amend the Forest Plan of the Jefferson National Forest so that construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline (MVP) can proceed have been rejected out of hand by Deputy Regional Forester Frank Beum.
The U.S. Forest Service’s draft Record of Decision (ROD) to amend the Forest Plans of the Monongahela National Forest (MFN) and George Washington National Forest (GWNF) to accommodate the proposed route of the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) received strong objections from numerous commenters.
