Water a growing part of business for natural gas company

Equitrans Midstream Corp., created by the split of natural gas producer EQT Corp., is embarking on a future that will include not only moving natural gas but also water. Much of the revenue around Equitrans (NYSE: ETRN) is around current and future pipelines including the Mountain Valley Pipeline, which could be completed by the end of 2019. Equitrans is expecting to spend $100 million in fresh water infrastructure including 55 miles of permanent pipe in southwestern Pennsylvania and Belmont County, Ohio.
