Rover Pipeline Gets Phase 2 Go-Ahead from FERC

Oil & Gas Journal recently reported: “FERC granted Rover permission to place a segment of Phase 2, which included Mainline Compressor Station 3 in Crawford County, Ohio, and a section of the line between Mainline Compressor Station 2, in Wayne County, Ohio, and Mainline Compressor Station 3, in service for additional throughput. FERC’s approval allows for the full commercial operation capability of the Market Zone North Segment.

“Phase 1 of the project was also placed into service in segments, with the first portion going into service Aug. 31, 2017, and the remaining segment of Phase 1 going into service in December of 2017. Since December 2017, Rover has been capable of transporting up to 1.7 bcfd of natural gas.

“Rover will transport natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale production areas to markets across the US as well as into the Union Gas Dawn Storage Hub in Ontario.”

As a member of the Coalition for the Expansion of Pipeline Infrastructure (CEPI), a partnership of businesses, trade associations and labor groups that support the responsible expansion of critical energy infrastructure across Ohio and the region, OMA applauds this FERC action. 5/9/2018
