Success Stories


Consol Energy Group


CONSOL, like Morgantown and all of West Virginia, can trace its roots straight down the state’s coalmines. CONSOL was established more than 150 years ago when coal operators in the region combined their resources to create the nation’s largest coal conglomeration. In the years since, CONSOL has diversified its holdings to include natural gas wells throughout the Appalachian region. CONSOL’s economic impact and community stewardship is directly felt in Morgantown and the surrounding area. Many of our community’s residents work either directly or indirectly for CONSOL’s headquarters in Canonsburg, Pa., less than an hour’s drive from Morgantown on Interstate 79.



Columbia Gas & Transmission


Columbia Gas and Transmission is part of the Columbia Pipeline Group headquartered in Houston, Texas. The company operates more than 15,000 miles of natural gas pipelines throughout the country moving more than 1 trillion cubic feet of natural gas annually. The Columbia Gas Transmission lines transport 3 billion cubic feet of natural gas throughout the Mid Atlantic region every day. The subsidiary has several locations throughout the Morgantown MSA including one in Terra Alta, West Virginia. Other nearby locations includes an office in the state’s capital of Charleston and another in Washington, PA – a 40 minute drive north from Morgantown on Interstate 79.
