FERC OK's Additional Rover Pipeline Operations

Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) announced the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has authorized Rover Pipeline to place additional Phase 2 facilities into service for the second time in as many weeks.

Today's ruling allows full commercial operation capacity of Rover's Market Zone North Segment. Last week, FERC granted permission to start operating a new compressor station and begin service on a 51-mile pipeline segment that connects it to one of the two compressor stations already approved by the commission. 

Phase 1 of the partnership's $4.2 billion project was also placed into service in segments, with portions starting operations in August and December of 2017. Since December, Rover has transported up to 1.7 Bcf/d of natural gas from Marion Township in Noble County, Ohio, to Tiffin Township in Defiance, Ohio.  

Upon expected completion in the second quarter of this year, the 713-mile system will be capable of transporting 3.25 Bcf/d of natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale production areas to markets across the United States and to the Union Gas Dawn Storage Hub in Ontario, Canada.

In a project update released last Wednesday, ETP said it has “successfully completed 98% of the HDDs needed for the project and are more than 99% complete with the total project construction."
