Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) has received US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approval to resume horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations on the Rover Pipeline Project.
The 713 mile (1,147 km) Rover Pipeline is designed to transport up to 92 million m3 of natural gas per day from the Marcellus and Utica Shale production areas to markets across the US, as well as into Union Gas’ Dawn storage hub in Ontario, Canada.
FERC has approved HDD operations at nine locations along the pipeline, which are expected to begin within the week.
There is a focus on completing the Captina Creek HDD in Belmont County, Ohio, which will allow the full Phase 1 portion of the project to be put into service by the end of the year after Phase 1A was put into service on 31 August.
It is anticipated that the Rover Pipeline Project will be fully operational by the end of the first quarter of 2018.
