EQT Executes New Gas Gathering Agreement With EQM - Quick Facts

EQT Corp. (EQT) reported the successful renegotiation of its contractual midstream rates with EQM Midstream Partners, LP and the exchange of 50% of its equity stake in Equitrans Midstream Corp.

Also, EQT has signed a letter agreement with EQM to award a minimum of $60 million of water services to EQM for a period of five years commencing with the Mountain Valley Pipeline's in-service date.
