The project began initial service on September 1, 2017, bringing about 700 MMcf/d of its certificated 3.25 Bcf/d capacity online, on a limited path. Since then, Rover has placed additional supply laterals and compressors into service, raising capacity to current levels of around 2 Bcf/d.

The latest in-service request to the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission involves mainline compressor stations, mainline pipeline segments and a Vector Pipeline delivery meter station. The second phase of the project, the market zone north section, is designed to allow access to Vector and the Dawn Hub in Ontario.

"Rover respectfully requests that the commission promptly issue an order granting commencement of service by April 25, 2018, so that its shippers can make the requisite contractual and operational arrangements to flow natural gas on the Rover Pipeline system," the operator said.

It added that "Rover's shippers have urgently requested Rover to place these facilities in service."

Earlier this month, Rover fired back at landowners who oppose start of service on several laterals associated with the project. Rover started up its Clarington and Seneca laterals, and since then it has been seeking to place additional laterals into service.
