Client: Natural Resources Defense Council
Rachel Wilson, Sagal Alisalad, Emrat Nur Marzan, and Bryndis Woods
On behalf of the Natural Resources Defense Council, Senior Researcher Rachel Wilson, Researcher Bryndis Woods, and Research Assistants Sagal Alisalad and Emrat Nur Marzan, prepared an Applied Economics Clinic report regarding The Atlantic Coast Pipeline. The Atlantic Coast Pipeline proposed new natural gas pipeline planned to travel through West Virginia, Virginia, and North Carolina and is intended to bring natural gas to markets in those states. Dominion Transmission, Inc., the leading percentage owner of the pipeline, has made several arguments in favor of the project based on reports it commissioned from ICF International and Chmura Economics & Analytics. In this report, AEC staff examined the merit of each of these claims and find them to be unsupported based on available data.
