Using a two-step process, Equitrans proposes to abandon gathering facilities in Fayette and Greene Counties, Pennsylvania; and Braxton, Doddridge, Gilmer, Harrison, Marion, Marshall, Monongalia, Ritchie, Taylor, Tyler, and Wetzel Counties, West Virginia. During the pendency of the application and the one-year period following the FERC order approving the abandonment, Equitrans will attempt to abandon the gathering facilities by sale. If a sale is not successful, Equitrans will abandon the gathering facilities in place. Any required National Environmental Policy Act environmental review would be conducted as part of the second step, however minimal land disturbance is anticipated whether the abandonment occurs by sale or in place. You may contact the Equitrans land department with any questions by calling Samuel Nesbitt at (304) 626-7921 or Equitrans toll free at 1-866-NTRLGAS (687-5427).
