ROVER PIPELINE LLC
Rover Pipeline LLC (Rover) is a new interstate natural gas pipeline company being designed to transport natural gas from processing facilities located in the prolific Marcellus and Utica Shale areas to market regions in the United States and Canada.
Rover Pipeline Project
The Rover Pipeline Project will enable the flow of natural gas from processing plants and interconnections in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Ohio to points of interconnection with Energy Transfer’s existing Panhandle Eastern Pipe Line and other Midwest pipeline interconnects near Defiance, Ohio.
Additionally, the Rover Pipeline Project expects to construct a segment from the Defiance, Ohio area through Michigan and ultimately to the Union Gas Hub, near Sarnia Canada providing producers with access to storage facilities, diverse markets, and end-users in Michigan and Canada with access to Marcellus and Utica supplies.
The Rover Pipeline is being designed to transport 3.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day through approximately 820 miles of 24-inch, 30-inch, 36-inch and 42-inch pipeline. Rover will also need to build compression and metering stations along its route. Tentatively, the Rover Pipeline has plans for four mainline compressor stations and six lateral compressor stations. The construction of the Rover Pipeline will provide new natural gas pipeline infrastructure to move natural gas to local utilities, to other pipelines for Midwest markets, and to the Dawn Hub for northeast markets.
Rover Pipeline Project Binding Open Season
Energy Transfer, through subsidiary Rover Pipeline LLC conducted an Open Season to solicit additional binding Precedent Agreements for firm transportation service on a new interstate natural gas pipeline system designed to provide access for rapidly growing Marcellus and Utica shale natural gas production to growing markets. Rover is designed as a seamless pipeline solution for producers needing diverse market outlets and end users seeking an abundant and reliable supply of natural gas.
Binding PAs which are executed prior to 5:00 pm Central, Thursday July 24, 2014, will not be subject to allocation.
The Open Season ended July 25, 2014.
Open House Informational Meetings
Rover Pipeline cordially invites landowners and other interested persons to the informational Open House meetings for the construction and operation of the Rover Pipeline Project. The Rover Open House meetings will be held September 16 - September 18, 2014 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm in locations that are in the general vicinity of the proposed pipeline route.
At each Open House will be pipeline maps for your viewing that can show the approximate Rover Pipeline location in relation to your property. Project Team members will be available to answer your questions, explain project details, and listen to any comments about the project.

Project Key Facts
||3.25 Bcf/day of natural gas
The pipeline is being designed to transport 3.25 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day through approximately 820 miles of 24-inch, 30-inch, 36-inch to 42-inch diameter pipeline with four mainline compressor stations, and approximately six lateral compressor stations.
||The pipeline will receive natural gas supplies from the Marcellus and Utica shale fields at the tailgate of processing plants located in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
||Natural gas will be delivered to two (2) interstate pipelines at the Midwest Hub-Defiance, Ohio; to Consumers Energy, and Michigan Consolidated in Michigan, and to the Union Gas Dawn Hub, Ontario Canada.
||Approximately 70 percent of the main transmission line will be under agricultural land, and will parallel existing pipelines, power lines, or roads.
