FERC has approved Energy Transfer Partners’ request to start construction of the Rover Pipeline, excluding the following:
- Any of the workspace variances identified in Rover’s February 3, 2017 Implementation Plan (associated with workspace shifts or pipeline realignments);
- 500 feet of cultural resources site numbers 33ST1088 and 33WE662
- The Pinckney Recreation Area
- Workspaces and route revisions required by environmental conditions 13, 14, and 45 of the Order
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 deliver as much as 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.
The project is expected to be in service in November 2017.
