Instead, the pipeline’s proposed 550-mile route cuts south of Fluvanna, through Nelson and Buckingham counties on its way from West Virginia to North Carolina.

Fluvanna residents first heard about this pipeline around the beginning of June in letters from Spectra Energy, which was responding to the request for proposals issued by project originators Duke Energy and Piedmont Natural Gas.

But Duke Energy and Piedmont Natural Gas announced Tuesday (Sept. 2) that they selected Dominion to build what will be known as the Atlantic Coast Pipeline.  And Dominion’s proposed route never crosses into Fluvanna.

The Atlantic Coast Pipeline will bring 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from an existing natural gas transmission facility in Harrison County, West Virginia, through 13 Virginia counties and down the Interstate 95 corridor in North Carolina.  At the Virginia-North Carolina border a 70-mile extension pipeline will split from the main pipeline and run eastward through Virginia to the Hampton Roads region.

The cost of the project is estimated to be between $4.5 billion and $5 billion.  Dominion estimates that the pipeline will be up and running by late 2018.
