A pipe dream? Assessing market and environmental impacts of proposed Appalachia-to-Southeast pipelines
Proposed Appalachia-to-Southeast pipelines face public and political pressure due to their perceived impact on the environment. However, these natural gas projects may yield tangible emissions benefits, in particular, helping to reduce the region’s reliance on coal.
In the latest Validere Insights report, our expert Market Fundamentals Team examines the full value chain methane emissions rate for Appalachia, using a synthesis of measurement-based national and regional studies. Additionally, they explore the environmental impact of projects such as the canceled Atlantic Coast Pipeline and delayed Mountain Valley Pipeline.
Key insights from the report include:
- How natural gas pipeline development induces changes across the value chain
- How these changes contribute to the emissions impact of proposed projects
- Why using technology to harness operational and emissions data is key for improving the industry's perception and credibility
