The company also wants this pipeline for export markets.

How would the pipeline affect my property value and ability to get a mortgage?

It appears likely that the pipeline would decrease individual property values and the value of surrounding properties.

Fixing the leaks in existing pipelines in our region could improve energy efficiency substantially.
