FERC orders halt to drilling on section of Rover pipeline

Federal regulators have told the company building the Rover natural gas pipeline across northern Ohio to stop drilling under the Tuscarawas River because of concerns over a spill of drilling fluids, according to the Associated Press. The news service says the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) wants Energy Transfer Partners, which is developing the pipeline, to answer questions about the spill and look at whether there are other options to cross the Tuscarawas River.
