FERC has approved the following Energy Transfer Partners’ Rover Pipeline requests:
- To use a new temporary workspace as well as a new temporary access road totaling 1.2 acres at approximate milepost 5.5 of the Clarington Lateral to install containment structures at the Captina Creek horizontal directional drill in Belmont County, Ohio.
- To use a new 325-foot-long temporary access road at milepost 49.7 on the Burgettstown Lateral to facilitate bridge installation at Conotton Creek in Carroll County, Ohio.
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. The Rover Pipeline 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.
