U.S. pipeline company Energy Transfer LP said on Friday that federal energy regulators approved the company’s request to put the last two segments of its $4.2 billion Rover natural gas pipeline into service:
* The U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) allowed Energy Transfer to put its Sherwood and CGT laterals in West Virginia into service.
* Energy Transfer originally planned to complete Rover in November 2017, but since starting construction in March 2017, has been delayed by numerous notices of violation in Ohio and other states, some of which led to temporary stop work orders from state and federal regulators.
* The 713-mile (1,148-kilometer) Rover is designed to carry up to 3.25 billion cubic feet per day (bcfd) of gas from Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio to Michigan.
* One billion cubic feet is enough gas to supply about five million U.S. homes for a day.Click here to view the rest of the article.
