Court negates one of several permits needed for gas pipeline that would cross under Appalachian NST

(Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court on Friday vacated a permit by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service that allowed Dominion Energy Inc to build its Atlantic Coast natural gas pipe from West Virginia to North Carolina in areas inhabited by threatened or endangered species.


Dominion suspended construction of the long-delayed $7.0-7.5 billion project in early December after the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, stayed the Fish and Wildlife Service’s permit, called an incidental take statement.
