RICHLAND CO., OH - Construction of the Rover Pipeline has made its way to Richland County.  The new interstate natural gas project to transport 3.25 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/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., the Northeast and into the Canadian market.

The approximate $4.2 billion pipeline will gather gas from processing plants in West Virginia, Eastern Ohio and Western Pennsylvania for delivery to the Midwest Hub near Defiance, Ohio, where roughly 68 percent of the gas will be delivered via interconnects with existing pipelines in Ohio and West Virginia for distribution to markets across the U.S.

Rover will connect Marcellus and Utica shale supplies to markets in the Midwest, Northeast, East Coast, Great Lakes and Gulf Coast regions of the United States and Canada. The pipeline is substantially subscribed through 15 and 20-year fee-based contracts.

The remaining 32 percent of the natural gas will be delivered to markets in Michigan via an interconnect near Livingston County, Michigan with the existing Vector pipeline, which has established delivery points to local distribution companies and the vast Michigan storage fields throughout the state. Additionally, Vector will transport natural gas that is not delivered to Michigan markets on to the Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada.
