Energy Transfer Partners is pleased to announce that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has approved the company’s request to resume horizontal directional drilling (HDD) operations along the Rover pipeline project.

Drilling operations on nine HDD locations approved by the FERC are expected to begin within the week with an emphasis on the Captina Creek HDD in Belmont County, Ohio (USA). The completion of the Captina Creek HDD will allow the full Phase 1 portion of Rover from Seneca (Ohio) to Defiance (Ohio), to be placed into service by the end of the year. Phase 1a of the Rover project from Cadiz (Ohio) to Defiance was successfully put into service on 31 August 2017.

When completed, this important 713 mile pipeline will transport up to 3.25 billion ft3 of natural gas per day from the Marcellus and Utica Shale production areas to markets across the United States as well as into Union Gas Dawn Storage Hub in Ontario (Canada).

The Rover pipeline project will continue to work with the FERC to adhere to the requirements outlined in its approval and look forward to successfully placing the full project into service in the end of the first quarter of 2018.
