Biden admin silent on natural gas pipeline despite energy price spikes

The Biden administration has remained silent regarding the construction of a natural gas pipeline in the U.S. as the nation faces surging energy prices.

The Equitrans Midstream pipeline set for Virginia and West Virginia could offer a new source of energy, but remains roadblocked by delays.

“After engaging with the federal agencies and evaluating all options, we believe the best path forward for MVP’s completion is to pursue new permits,” Thomas Karam, the chairman and CEO of Equitrans said in a statement Tuesday.

“To reflect the time required for permit re-issuance and to ensure safe, responsible project construction, we have revised our MVP in-service target to the second half of 2023,” he added.

The delays also continue to increase costs for the construction. The current project’s proposed cost now stands at $6.6 billion.

The country is in desperate need of new energy, but Biden doesn’t seem to have the energy to even make a decision to help the company begin.

Time for America to shut Biden down for the good of America. The man is not fit for the office he holds and his VP is not fit either. something needs to be done and done soon!
