Portfolio of Assets

Traverse Midstream’s current assets, Rover Pipeline and Ohio River System, tap into supply from the prolific Marcellus/Utica shales. Traverse’s partner on both investments, Energy Transfer Partners (ETP), is a leading developer and operator of assets across the midstream investment spectrum.

The Rover Pipeline is a new-build 715-mile, 42-inch FERC regulated interstate natural gas transmission pipeline with a full-service capacity of 3.25 Bcf/d.

Rover Pipeline

Rover is a new-build 715-mile, 42-inch FERC regulated interstate natural gas transmission pipeline with a full-service capacity of 3.25 Bcf/d. It will receive gas from processing plants in West Virginia, eastern Ohio and western Pennsylvania for compression and delivery into premium markets. Traverse owns a 35% non-operating equity interest in Rover. The company initially secured a 20% interest in Rover in November 2014 and added an incremental 15% interest in January 2015.
