FERC has approved Energy Transfer Partners’ request to use 15 contractor yards for staging and equipment storage as part of the Rover Pipeline Project. Last month, FERC approved two separate requests to begin non-mechanized tree felling for the project.
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. Once completed, the pipeline will deliver 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.
The project will be completed in two phases, with Phase I projected to be in service in July 2017 and Phase II in November 2017.
