Later, 7:05 p.m. CT: speaking of "Rover" -- this just in -- moments ago from ArgusMedia --
Energy Transfer Partners (ETP) said its Rover natural gas pipeline will not reach completion until the second quarter, up to three months later than its earlier estimate. Delay due to a regulatory issue which has since been resolved.Later, 6:44 p.m. CT: see first comment --
Regarding EQT ...
The acquisition of Rice will not only enable much longer laterals (there are NO geometric, pre-set drilling units in Eastern states. Contiguous acreage is invaluable for efficiency), Rice's recognized drill skills will be a huge boost for the new company.
The article mentioned the 1.9 Bcfd Mountain Valley pipe coming online this year - one of 2 opening up the south.mid Atlantic to vast gas supplies (the other being the Atlantic Coast pipeline).
Another massive pipe - Mountaineer Xpress - is under construction and - at 2.7 Bcfd - is almost as big as the well recognized Rover.
This time next year, Appalachian Basin output will soar.
Story at ArgusMedia, EQT:
- largest natural gas producer in the US when it acquired Rice Energy last year
- acquisition resulted in proven reserves of 21.4 Tcf of natural gas equivalent
- sold 3.2 Bcfe/d by end of 4Q17
- the acquisition hastened the spin-off
- EQT Midstream Partners will merge with Rice Midstream Partners
- result: will become the third largest gathering footprint in the US
