FERC has approved Energy Transfer Partners’ request to add a third compressor unit at the Majorsville Compressor Station and to install a new equipment run at the Majorsville Meter Station, both located in Marshall County, West Virginia, as part of the Rover Pipeline Project.
With the addition of the 3,550 hp compressor unit, the total horsepower of the Majorsville Compressor Station will now be 10,650 hp. Also, once completed, the point capacity of the Majorsville Compressor Station and the Majorsville Meter Station will increase from 300 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) to 400 MMcf/d.
The Rover Pipeline Project includes new interstate pipeline and related facilities extending from the Appalachian supply area to a proposed interconnection with Vector Pipeline, LP in Livingston County, Michigan. It will transport up to 3.25 billion cubic feet per day of domestically-produced natural gas to markets in the Midwest, Northeast, East Coast, Gulf Coast and Canada, with direct deliveries to Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, and into the Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada, which includes a broader network of distribution points back into the U.S.
The project is expected to be operational in November 2017.
