FERC Gives Rover Phase 1B Permission to Begin Service, 1.7 Bcf/d

Energy Transfer Partners (ET) announced on Friday that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has granted ET permission to bring Rover Pipeline Phase 1B online–as of now. Building the mighty Rover, a $4.2 billion, 713-mile Utica/Marcellus natural gas pipeline that will stretch from PA, WV and eastern OH, through OH, into Michigan, and eventually on to Canada, has always been a two-phase project–Phase 1 and Phase 2. Phase 1 was further broken down into 1A and 1B. Phase 1A, which is the main line through most of Ohio, went online Sept. 1 (see Big Portion of Rover Pipeline Now Up & Running – Thru Most of Ohio). Phase 1B is the completion of several important “laterals” (or offshoot pipelines), along with compressor stations. This new segment will serve to feed more gas to the main Rover pipeline. It was Phase 1B that got approved on Friday, and is presumably now up and running as you read this. With the addition of Phase 1B, Rover now has the capacity to flow 1.7 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas. When Phase 2 is done in 1Q18, the pipeline’s full capacity of 3.25 Bcf/d will go online…
