FERC has approved Energy Transfer Partners’ request to relocate a 0.2-mile-long portion of the CGT Lateral as part of the Rover Pipeline Project.
According to FERC’s Kevin Bowman, the relocation at approximate mileposts 4.0 to 4.2 in Doddridge County, West Virginia, is needed to avoid a recently constructed high voltage electric transmission line not previously identified by the company.
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.
