EQT gets Sunrise Pipeline approval
PITTSBURGH, Pa. - EQT announced on Sept. 21 that it has received federal permission to start building its $272 million Sunrise pipeline system that will run for 44 miles between Greene County and Wetzel County, W.Va.
Sunrise will connect to a new compressor station in Greene County, near Jefferson, and in West Virginia will have a hookup to MarkWest's Mobley processing plant that can separate natural gas liquids from the region's wet gas.
Construction is being done through the company's gathering, storage and transmission arm, Equitrans LP. Construction starts almost immediately, and the system is expected to be operational before next summer.
