Agreement Eliminates a Portion of Roverís Route through Michigan

Rover Continues to Provide U.S. Markets with Increased Access to Natural Gas Originating from
Utica and Marcellus Production Areas

DALLAS, Feb. 2, 2015 Ė Rover Pipeline, LLC is pleased to announce it has signed a contract with Vector Pipeline and its affiliates for firm transportation capacity to deliver gas to markets in Michigan and the Union Gas Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada, as part of the Rover Pipeline project. This arrangement continues to allow Rover to offer seamless transportation service to its shippers from the Marcellus and Utica production areas to markets in the Midwest, Great Lakes and Gulf Coast regions of the United States, and to the Union Gas Dawn Hub.

The capacity arrangement with Vector eliminates the need for Rover to build its pipeline through Michiganís Shiawassee, Genesee, Lapeer, Oakland St. Clair, and Macomb Counties. This new development is consistent with Roverís ongoing efforts to minimize the projectís footprint. It is also consistent with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commissionís guidelines and expectations which encourage companies to evaluate alternative routes that maximize the use of existing utilities and utilize existing rights-of-way, where possible. Through this agreement, Rover will eliminate 110 miles of pipeline through Michigan, and will eliminate the Canadian portion entirely.......
