ROANOKE, Va. (AP) — Mountain Valley Pipeline developers have submitted a request to extend the natural gas pipeline project into North Carolina.

The Roanoke Times reported the application filed Nov. 6, asks for a 73-mi. extension for the 300-mi. pipeline that is being constructed in West Virginia and Virginia. Mountain Valley proposed the $468 million project called MVP Southgate in April.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission application said the project would start at the current project's endpoint in Pittsylvania County, Va. It would run to Alamance County, N.C. and provide gas to local distribution company PSNC Energy.

Opponents fear environmental damage, object to the pipeline's use of eminent domain to obtain private land and question if the pipeline is needed. Mountain Valley says it hopes to start construction on the new project in 2020.
