REX Zone 3 Modification Gets Green Light From FERC

April 2017

FERC has approved Rockies Express Pipeline LLC’s request to use an additional 0.52 acre of temporary workspace at the Hamilton Compressor Station located in Warren County, Ohio for the REX Zone 3 Capacity Enhancement Project.

According to FERC, the modification is necessary to accommodate topsoil segregation and the additional workspace is located within the project areas for which Rockies Express has already obtained State Historic Preservation Office and US Fish and Wildlife Service concurrences.

The REX Zone Three Capacity Enhancement Project will consist of constructing three additional compressor stations and adding horse power at two existing compressor stations. Once completed, the expected bi-directional REX system in Zone 3 would operate flexibly to meet both existing west-to-east firm transportation commitments from the Rockies supply basins and the new and existing demand for east-to-west firm transportation in Zone 3 from Appalachian supply basins.
