Pipeline Construction Project Can Use Extra Workspace

Posted on

FERC has approved two Equitrans L.P. variance requests for the Ohio Valley Connector Project. The approved variances include use of new additional temporary workspace in two locations (mileposts 1.6 and 8.3) in Wetzel County, West Virginia to retrieve surficial soil material that has slipped beyond the certificated right-of-way and to stabilize the affected areas.

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.
