Energy Transfer Receives FERC Approval to Construct Rover Pipeline

Energy Transfer Partners L.P., February 6, 2017

Energy Transfer Partners, L.P. has announced that the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) approved Rover Pipeline LLC’s (“Rover”) application to construct and operate the Rover Pipeline Project. FERC’s order, issued February 2, allows Rover to move forward with its pipeline. Rover has already notified FERC that it has accepted the certificate. FERC’s order also approved Rover’s proposed tariff rates without modification.

Consistent with its previous statements, Rover anticipates it can meet its targeted in-service goals of July 2017 for Phase I and November 2017 for Phase II.

The Rover Pipeline Project consists of new interstate pipeline and related facilities extending from the Appalachian supply area to a proposed interconnection with Vector Pipeline, LP in Livingston County, Michigan. The Rover Pipeline will transport up to 3.25 billion cubic feet per day of domestically-produced natural gas to markets in the Midwest, Northeast, East Coast, Gulf Coast and Canada, with direct deliveries to Ohio, West Virginia, Michigan, and into the Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada, which has a broader network of distribution points back into the U.S.
