TransCanada’s Mountaineer Xpress (MXP) pipeline project has been placed in-service as of 1 March 2019.
The 274 km natural gas pipeline runs from Marshall County to Wayne County in West Virginia, US.
Designed to deliver approximately 76 million m3 of domestically produced natural gas per day, MXP has been in development for more than four years.
TransCanada Vice President US Natural Gas Project Richard Prior said the team constructing the pipeline had worked hard to bring the pipeline online.
“Completing a project like MXP is no small feat,” he said.
“Throughout the project, our teams were challenged time after time, whether it be regulatory delays, construction progress slowed by the rainiest summer in West Virginia’s history, or navigating complex engineering conditions, the team always found a way to persevere and keep advancing the project forward.”
TransCanada said approximately 9,000 jobs were created during construction, while the project is anticipated to have an economic benefit of more than US$2 billion.
