Oil and Gas Pipelines and Wells Connect with Us

Pipelines transport a variety of substances from one location to another without the dependency on trucks or highways. Some pipeline rights-of-way alter the natural habitat causing fragmentation and dislocation of wildlife. In West Virginia, natural gas pipelines and wells have become commonplace.

The Conservation Planning Assistance (CPA) program biologist provides technical assistance to companies so they can avoid or minimize impacts to natural resources such as wetlands, endangered species habitat, and trout streams. The biologist also coordinates programmatic agreements with the oil and gas industry to provide information prior to project implementation, with the result of increased avoidance of trust resources and a more efficient project review.
