The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) request to put Phase 1A of the Rover Pipeline into service.
Phase 1A, a 212 mile (341 km) section from Cadiz to Defiance, Ohio, has now been entered into service, with natural gas flowing through the pipeline on 31 August 2017.
The 713 mile (1,147 km) Rover Pipeline is designed to transport up to 92 million m3 of natural gas per day from the Marcellus and Utica Shale production areas to markets across the US, as well as into Union Gas’ Dawn storage hub in Ontario, Canada.
In March FERC approved the pipeline, allowing construction to move forward.
At the time ETP anticipated it would be able to meet its in-service targets of July for Phase 1 and November for Phase 2.
