West Virginia senators push for Appalachia natural gas storage hub

West Virginia's U.S. Sens. Joe Manchin and Shelley Moore Capito are urging federal officials to consider building a major natural gas storage and distribution hub in the Appalachian region, reports The Associated Press. The news service says the senators state in a letter to National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn that the White House should examine “the numerous benefits" of putting a natural gas liquids-storage and distribution hub in Appalachia, which has “growing but still underutilized” reserves of natural gas.
