Rover Pipe Nearly Doubles Flow with Addition of Carroll, OH Compressor

Fire it up! On Friday, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) granted Energy Transfer permission to fire up the three units that make up the Carroll County Compressor Station (called Compressor Station 1) that helps compress and flow natural gas through the mighty Rover Pipeline. According to the letter from FERC authorizing the startup of the compressor station, FERC is authorizing “partial” service to commence. Since ET wanted to start the station on Friday, we expect the plant is by now up and running. The effect will be dramatic. According to stats released by NGI (Natural Gas Intelligence), which has an excellent Rover Tracker application on their website (see Friday’s version here), Rover has been flowing around 680 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of Utica/Marcellus gas. With the addition of the Carroll County compressor station, that number will nearly double–to 1.2 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d). Cool! Here’s the details of how Rover’s capacity just nearly doubled with the addition of a single compressor station…
