FERC approves Rover Pipeline
Energy Transfer’s Rover Pipeline has been approved for construction and operation by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC).
The ruling, which was issued last month, means that construction on the US$4.2-billion pipeline could now move forward.
The project consists of new interstate pipeline and related facilities, extending from the Appalachian supply area to a proposed interconnection with in Vector Pipeline in Livingston County, Michigan.
Once completed the 1,150-km 24-42-inch pipeline will transport up to 92,000,000 m3 of natural gas per day to 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 US.
Energy Partners anticipates it will be able to meet its in-service targets of July for Phase 1 and November for Phase 2.
