Last week, Energy Transfer Partners asked the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to approve the final two laterals on its Rover natural gas pipeline, according to Platts. The company seeks to create additional capacity to meet downstream demand.
ETP said in a filing with the FERC that shippers have requested the Rover place the CGT and Sherwood laterals into service, as well associated compression and metering stations, to allow their stranded Appalachian Basin gas supplies to be delivered to Midwest markets. the operator seeks approval of commencement of service by sept. 15.
The Rover pipeline is designed to move gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale production areas across the US as well as to the Dawn Hub in Ontario.
