More Tree Felling Approved for Rover Pipeline

Posted on

FERC has approved Energy Transfer Partners’ request to conduct non-mechanized tree felling in wetland areas not previously authorized in the agency’s February 13, 2017 notice to proceed as part of the Rover Pipeline Project.

According to FERC, the tree felling must occur within the allotted construction time window for federally-listed bats and migratory birds, which expires on March 31, 2017.

The Rover Pipeline Project consists of 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 has a broader network of distribution points back into the U.S.
