Natural Gas Pipeline Could Be Coming to 8 Counties in North Carolina

North Carolina could host a 550 mile interstate pipeline carrying natural gas from the Marcellus shale.One property owner, Julian Bain, says he’s worried about the land he worked hard to earn. The proposed natural gas line would run through his property, a space he hoped his children would one day build on.”If it goes like it shows on the map right now, it will pretty much destroy the 20 acres for them building houses on and stuff later,” said Bain.It’s concerns like Bain’s which prompted Dominion Energy to hold Monday’s information meeting. Organizers say it’s a chance for the public to look at the route and make some changes.”So that can show us their property on the map, and they can say, ‘Can you move it this way, can you tweak it that way?’ and we try to accommodate that,” said Jim Norvelle of Dominion Energy. The pipeline would run through about 180 miles of North Carolina, entering eight counties. The structure would carry about 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas from the Marcellus shale in West Virginia, every day.While some land owners are concerned, others are welcoming the idea.
