Rover Pipeline can start pumping natural gas through completed sections of the $4.2 billion interstate pipeline.
In a letter Thursday, the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission granted Rover’s request to start using its 191-mile, 42-inch-diameter mainline from Carroll County to Defiance County. A second mainline is under construction.
FERC also gave Rover permission to use 3.5 miles of 30-inch-diameter pipeline in Harrison County and 18.6 miles of 42-inch-diameter pipeline that connects Harrison County to Carroll County.
In an email, Rover spokeswoman Alexis Daniel said the company was pleased with FERC’s decision and would be flowing gas through the approved sections right away.
Dallas-based Energy Transfer is building the Rover project. When completed, the pipeline will carry 3.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day from the Utica and Marcellus shales to users in the Great Lakes, Midwest, Gulf Coast and Canada.
Locally, Rover’s twin mainlines cross Carroll, Tuscarawas, Stark and Wayne counties.Click here to read more.
