The Appalachian Gas Connector is an operating gas pipeline that links West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio into the US pipeline grid.

The Appalachian Connector Project was scheduled for construction in two phases. Phase one was expected to be in-service in the second quarter of 2018. Phase one includes a 1 billion cubic feet per day gas header system, which provides dry gas midstream services to shipper and producers in eastern Ohio and West Virginia. Phase 1 also includes a 200 million cubic feet per day wet gas system, which delivers to several processing plants.

Construction of phase two was expected to begin in early 2018, and would have included additional miles of dry gas pipeline and multiple additional interconnections to services markets near the Ohio River border between Ohio and West Virginia.[3]

Construction began in June, 2017.[2] The pipeline is presumed to have begun operation in 2018.
