Phase 1A is three primary areas in Ohio: (1) the Cadiz Lateral, which is 3.5 miles of 30-inch diameter natural gas pipeline in Harrison County; (2) Supply Connector Line A, which is 18.6 miles of single, 42-inch diameter natural gas pipeline from the Cadiz tie-in in Harrison County extending north to Mainline Compressor Station 1 and the interconnection with Mainline A in Carroll County; and (3) Mainline A, which is the bulk of the new pipeline through OH–190.9 miles of single, 42-inch diameter natural gas pipeline originating at the Mainline Compressor Station 1 in Carroll County and terminating at the Defiance Compressor Station in Defiance County. In addition, Rover asked that the Panhandle-Rover Interconnect be turned on a few days ahead of the 31st so the gas will be ready to flow through the new Rover pipeline.
