Project Details

  • Owner: RH Energy
  • Proposed capacity: 55,000 dekatherms per day
  • Length: 96 km/ 60 miles
  • Status: Operating
  • Start Year: 2018

Background

In July of 2018, the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) issued a favorable environmental assessment for the Riseberg Pipeline, clearing the way for the RH Energytrans LLC (RH) project to proceed. In October 2017, RH filed an application with FERC requesting to construct and operate a new interstate natural gas pipeline system. The proposed Riseberg Pipeline includes pipeline facilities, two compressor stations, metering and regulating stations, and facilities in Pennsylvania and Ohio, USA.[1]

The Riseberg Line will provide 55,000 dekatherms per day of natural gas transportation service for DEO, a local distribution company in northeast Ohio, as well as other customers in the area. The target in-service date for the project facilities is November 1, 2018.[1]

The project will include 60 miles (96 km) of 8- and 12-in. (203- and 305-mm)- diameter pipeline and two compressor stations totaling 1862 hp (1389 kW). It will incorporate approximately 32 miles (51 km) of existing 8- and 12-in.-diameter natural gas gathering pipeline, which RH will acquire and convert to natural gas transmission service, and 28 miles (45 km) of new 12-in.-diameter pipeline.
