Rover Pipeline Makes FERC Progress


According to the Coalition for the Expansion of Pipeline Infrastructure, of which OMA is a member, “… the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) released a final environmental impact statement for the Rover Pipeline, the next step in the process of the federal review process.  FERC concluded that construction and operation of the Rover Pipeline will create minimal environmental impacts, which will be effectively mitigated through the extensive planning and coordination enacted by the Rover team. ” … With FERC having concluded its environmental impact statement, the agency now has asked other federal agencies to complete their comments before a certificate can be issued for the project. … The Coalition expects the final certificate for Rover to be issued in the fall of 2016, after which construction will commence. …”
