Analysis: Rover Pipeline Coming Online Results in Higher Flows into East Canada

Platts reported: Rover Pipeline’s long-awaited Market Zone North segment startup is resulting in higher flows into Eastern Canada as well as increased storage injection activity there, while lower injection activity is now being seen in the US Midwest. Flows into the Dawn Hub in Ontario increased on June 1 when the segment was placed into service, which allows gas produced in the US Northeast region to access downstream markets at Dawn via leased capacity on Vector Pipeline. This has driven exports from Michigan to Dawn on Vector to climb 400 MMcf/d from the May average, although the overall impact on the Midwest has, thus far, been spread out and somewhat muted, according to S&P Global Platts Analytics. Since June 1, Rover has delivered an average of about 800 MMcf/d into Vector Pipeline, where Rover has 950 MMcf/d of leased capacity under long-term contract. On Vector, deliveries to Dawn since then have increased by about 450 MMcf/d to average 605 MMcf/d this month, up from an average 160 MMcf/d in the last week of May.

The methane gas will be turned into natural gas and used to fuel waste collection trucks. “The Outer Loop Recycling and Disposal Facility accepts around 1 million tons of waste per year from local area businesses and homes,” Waste Management Area Vice President Tim Wells said. “This project closes the loop.” Each day, the facility will produce enough natural gas to fuel 800 trucks.
