FERC has approved Equitrans, L.P.’s request to place into service the H-314 Pipeline, Plasma Interconnect, and the third meter run at the Isaly Interconnect in Monroe County, Ohio associated with the Ohio Valley Connector Project.
According to FERC’s J. Rich McGuire, Equitrans has adequately stabilized the construction workspaces and rehabilitation and stabilization of the construction work areas are proceeding satisfactorily.
The Ohio Valley Connector Project is a natural gas pipeline system that spans approximately 37 miles from northwestern West Virginia to southeastern Ohio and connects with the existing Equitrans Mainline and Sunrise Transmission System and the Rockies Express Pipeline. It uses two new compressor stations with about 40,000 hp combined – the Corona Station in Wetzel County, WV and the Plasma Station in Monroe County, OH – and connects with the existing Equitrans Mainline and Sunrise Transmission System and the Rockies Express pipeline, as well as planned interconnects with the Texas Eastern Transmission line and Rover Pipeline project.
