FERC allows natural gas to start flowing along Rover Pipeline

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) has granted Rover Pipeline’s request to start flowing natural gas through the company’s 191-mile, 42-inch-diameter mainline from Carroll County in eastern Ohio to Defiance County in the northwest area of the state, reports the Columbus Dispatch. The newspaper says FERC also gave Rover permission to use 3.5 miles of a 30-inch-diameter pipeline in Harrison County and 18.6 miles of a 42-inch-diameter line that connects Harrison and Carroll counties. When completed, the pipeline will carry 3.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day from the Utica and Marcellus shale plays to users in the Great Lakes, Midwest and Canada.
