CANONSBURG, Pa. — Gas is finally flowing through the Mountain Valley Pipeline, according to its developer.

The 303-mile natural gas pipeline, after a decade-long development process, went into service Friday after “satisfying all applicable legal and regulatory requirements,” said Equitrans Midstream in a Friday press release.

“This is an important and long-awaited day for our nation and the millions of Americans who now have greater access to an abundant supply of domestic natural gas for use as an affordable, reliable and cleaner energy resource,” said Diana Charletta, president and CEO of Equitrans Midstream. “Natural gas is an essential fuel for modern life, and, as a critical infrastructure project, the Mountain Valley Pipeline will play an integral role in achieving a lower-carbon future while helping to ensure America’s energy and economic security for decades to come.”

The pipeline is now available for “interruptible or short-term firm transportation service” until long-term firm capacity obligations commence July 1, the company said.
