Rover Pipeline LLC is appealing FERC's denial last month of a blanket certificate for routine construction activities, challenging the Commission's conclusions regarding the demolition of a historic home near a proposed compressor station.
Rover, represented by its general counsel along with attorneys from Norton Rose Fulbright US LLP and Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher LLP, filed a request for rehearing Monday [CP15-93] asserting that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission had erred in denying Rover a blanket certificate under Part 157, Subpart F of the Commission's regulations.
The blanket certificate allows companies to go ahead with certain kinds of routine construction without applying for approval from FERC staff.
FERC issued a certificate order approving Rover on Feb. 2. In that order FERC denied the pipeline's request for the blanket certificate, a de facto sanction after Rover acquired and subsequently demolished the historic Stoneman House in Ohio without consulting the Commission. The house was located within the area of potential effects of Rover's proposed Mainline Compressor Station 1 and was eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.Click here to read more.
