The Economic Impact of Rover
Rover Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline that will bring natural gas into the Union
Gas Dawn near Sarnia, Ontario from the rapidly expanding Marcellus and Utica Shale
production areas in the United States. The Dawn Hub is one of North America’s most liquid
natural gas trading hubs. Its strategic location provides the ability to deliver natural gas to
both eastern Canadian and northeastern U.S. markets.
• Rover Pipeline is an approximately
$76 million pipeline and will create up to
300 temporary construction jobs.
The Canadian section of the 42” diameter Rover Pipeline will begin at the St. Clair River and
will run approximately 24 kilometers (15 miles) to the Dawn Hub to transport approximately
1.3 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. Overall, the Rover Pipeline is an approximately
1,290-kilometer (800-mile) pipeline designed to transport up to 3.25 billion cubic feet of
natural gas per day from multiple U.S. gas processing facilities in West Virginia, Pennsylvania
and Ohio to interconnects in northwest Ohio and Michigan, which are direct connections to
markets in the Gulf Coast, Midwest and Canadian regions.
• Rover will employ two to four permanent
employees in Lambton County to manage
the ongoing operations of the pipeline.
• The construction of Rover also will benefit
local businesses along the construction route
as goods and services will be procured from
local business and the project’s construction
crews will stay at local hotels, dine in local
restaurants and shop in local stores.
While building a new pipeline is a complicated undertaking that involves the approval of the
National Energy Board (NEB), it is important that we first reach out to those who live and
work in the communities through which the pipeline may pass to provide information on the
project and communicate the overall importance of the Rover Pipeline and it benefits.
• It is estimated that more than $10.6 million
in sales tax revenue will be generated
during the construction of this pipeline.
Natural gas pipelines are a key component of the world’s energy infrastructure and the safest
way of transporting natural gas. The NEB has stringent requirements that govern pipeline
construction and operation, in addition to the rigorous standards for the safe construction and
operation of our pipelines set by Energy Transfer Partners, the parent entity for Rover.
• Property taxes also will be paid to the local
Provinces crossed by the Rover Pipeline
on an annual basis while the pipeline is in
service. This is estimated at more than
$1.4 million in tax revenue per year.

Pipeline Facts
Environmental
• Construction will include a visual and a nondestructive
inspection of every weld that joins sections of pipe together.
• The pipeline will be covered by a minimum of 1.0 meter
(~39 inches) of soil and more if it crosses under roads,
rivers, lakes or streams.
• Rover will have automated valves installed to shut off the
flow of gas in the case of an emergency.
• Gas control will monitor the pipeline 24 hours a day/7 days
a week.
• The pipeline will be tested with water under higher-thannormal pressure and regulation devices will be installed to
prevent pressure from exceeding safe limits.
• In agricultural fields, the pipe will be buried no less than
1.2 meters (48 inches).
• Rover will cover the costs of any drain tile impacted during
the construction of operation of the pipeline including
relocation, repair or replacement.
• Topsoil will be stripped and segregated during
construction to topsoil depth or in accordance with
landowner or regulatory requirements.
