Mountain Valley Pipeline, LLC’s (MVP) attacks on our greenhouse gas methodology are not aligned with the best available science. In fact, the operation of the Mountain Valley Pipeline would contribute significant greenhouse gas pollution, and our methodology for assessing its climate impacts is sound. That’s the conclusion of a letter filed by Oil Change International to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) docket for the Mountain Valley Pipeline Project.
In October, MVP submitted comments to FERC, attacking Oil Change International and Sierra Club for our efforts to call attention to the pipeline project’s substantial greenhouse gas emissions. Unfortunately for MVP, their efforts to discredit our research fall flat, as we document in our response. The pipeline remains a dangerous and unnecessary threat to the climate crisis, and MVP should cancel it.
