Rover Pipeline Gets Go Ahead from FERC


Last week, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity for the Rover Pipeline project. The Coalition for the Expansion of Pipeline Infrastructure (CEPI), of which OMA is a member, applauded FERC for releasing the certificate after two years of thorough review. Once in operation, the Rover Pipeline will fill a critical need of natural gas producers in the Marcellus shale region. While production levels have steadily risen in recent years thanks to new extraction technologies, the ability to transport those resources to end markets has been lacking. Now, with the Rover Pipeline clearing a major regulatory hurdle, natural gas producers in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and West Virginia are one step closer to meeting demand for affordable, domestically-produced natural gas.  2/6/2017
