The 4th U.S. Circuit Courtroom of Appeals sided with attorneys from Mountain Valley Pipeline on Friday, dismissing challenges to building permits for the venture by environmental teams.
The U.S. Supreme Courtroom last month allowed building to renew after the 4th Circuit had halted work on MVP, even after Congress ordered the venture’s approval as a part of D.C. laws to extend the debt ceiling.
“Armed with this new laws enacted particularly of their favor, Respondents – the federal companies and the Mountain Valley Pipeline – moved on this Courtroom for the dismissal of the petitions,” appeals choose James Wynn wrote. “Upon consideration of the issues earlier than us, we should grant Respondents’ motions to dismiss.”
Environmental teams have opposed the $6.6B pure fuel pipeline venture, which is led by Equitrans Midstream (NYSE:ETRN) with companions NextEra Power (NEE), Consolidated Edison (ED), AltaGas (OTCPK:ATGFF) and RGC Sources (RGCO).
