Rover Pipeline, a subsidiary of Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), has received authorization from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to commence service at the remaining three compressor units at Compressor Station 1 in Carroll County, Ohio. On Oct. 6, 2017, the commission authorized partial in-service of Compressor Station 1, and this authorization grants full service of the station.
According to FERC’s Rich McGuire, Energy Transfer Partners has adequately stabilized the construction workspaces at Compressor Station 1 and restoration is proceeding satisfactorily. McGuire added that although restoration of this site is not complete at this time, the company has committed to complete the remaining restoration activities and file photographic documentation with the commission when they are complete.
The Rover Pipeline includes new interstate pipeline and related facilities extending from the Appalachian supply area to a proposed interconnection with Vector Pipeline in Livingston County, Mich. It will transport up to 3.25 bcf/d 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 the Union Gas Dawn Storage Hub in Ontario, Canada.
