Like all of Central Appalachia, Mingo County, West Virginia along with Pike and Floyd Counties, Kentucky possesses vast coal and natural gas resources, ample water and a robust transportation infrastructure. The TransGas project sites are able to draw on the workforce and the vast coal reserves in Pike, Martin, Letcher, Floyd and Knott Counties in Kentucky, Mingo, Logan, Wyoming and McDowell counties in West Virginia and Buchanan and Wise Counties in Virginia.

The citizens and leadership of these counties and states, as well as those of the entire region have been extremely supportive of the TransGas projects. As a result there are now three permitted TransGas projects under development; Adams Fork Energy, LLC in West Virginia and in Buffalo Creek Energy, LLC and Chisolm Energy LLC in Kentucky.
