Energy Transfer Partners' proposed $4.2 billion, 1147 km Rover natural gas pipeline from Pennsylvania to Ontario, Canada has been approved by the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission after a two year review.

The pipeline will transport up to 3.25 billion cubic feet per day from processing plants in West Virginia, eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania for delivery to the Midwest Hub near Defiance, Ohio, and markets in Michigan via an interconnect near Livingston County. Natural gas not delivered to these markets will be shipped to a natural gas storage center in Ontario, Canada.

Proponents of the Rover pipeline say this is another step the United States is taking toward energy independence.
