Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) has secured an approval the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) to resume horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations along the $4.2bn Rover pipeline project.
Following the FERC approval, ETP expects to start drilling operations on nine HDD locations soon, with a focus on the Captina Creek HDD in Belmont County, Ohio.
The completion of the Captina Creek HDD operations will enable the company to put the full phase 1 portion of Rover pipeline project into service by the end of the year. The phase 1 portion runs from Seneca, Ohio, to Defiance, Ohio.
ETP has already put into service the phase 1a of the Rover project from Cadiz, Ohio, to Defiance, Ohio.
Upon completion, the 1,147km pipeline is expected to transport up to 3.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day from the Marcellus and Utica Shale production areas to markets across the US.Click here to continue this article.
