US Department of energy accused the "environmental lobby" in the collapse of gas pipeline project

US Department of energy blames "the environmental lobby" in the collapse of gas pipeline project Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP), said the energy Minister Dan Browett.

Sunday Dominion Energy with partner Duke Energy abandoned the project of a major pipeline of ASR due to uncertainty with prices and regulation. At the request of the power companies, the gas pipeline worth more than $ 8 billion is not justified, given the numerous delays and lawsuits by environmentalists, land owners and local residents. The partners abandoned the project, despite the big win in the Supreme court, which in June allowed the construction of ACP under the Appalachian trail Hiking route through the mountains of the Atlantic coast, which stretches for 3.5 thousand miles from Georgia to Maine.
