FERC on Friday authorized Rover Pipeline LLC to resume horizontal directional drilling (HDD) at two additional locations where work had been stopped following an April drilling fluids spill near the Tuscarawas River in Ohio.
In a letter Friday, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission staff said Rover has "developed and filed specific measures to address the recommendations" provided by J.D. Hair & Associates, the engineering firm brought in to review the Tuscarawas incident.
Based on a review of site-specific plans, FERC said Rover may resume HDDs at the Black Fork Mohican and Highway 42 crossings.
