Energy Transfer Partners LP (ETP) expects to restore land over several sections of the Rover natural gas pipeline from Ohio to Michigan by the end of August, it said in a regulatory filing posted on Wednesday, moving the project a step closer to full completion:
* After Rover took longer than expected to restore land around some pipeline sections, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) said in June that its review of future in-service requests “will depend, in part, on a demonstration of Rover’s commitment to satisfactory restoration of construction areas and workspaces.”
* Rover estimated it would complete final grading, seeding and other work by Aug. 31 on several Rover sections, including the Burgettstown lateral from Pennsylvania to Ohio, the Majorsville lateral from West Virginia to Ohio and the Market Segment from Ohio to Michigan.
* Rover is the biggest of several pipelines expected to enter service over the next year to connect growing output in the Marcellus and Utica shale basins in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio with customers in other parts of the United States and Canada.
* The $4.2 billion Rover project is designed to carry up to 3.25 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) of gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale fields to the U.S. Midwest and Gulf Coast as well as Ontario, Canada.Continue reading by clicking here.
