Utica Shale Production Brings Newly Proposed Natural Gas Pipeline to Eastern Ohio

DTE Energy, Spectra Energy Corp. and Enbridge Inc. are jointly developing the proposed Nexus Gas Transmission Project, a proposed 250-mile natural gas pipeline which would connect production in eastern Ohio to the existing pipeline grid in southeastern Michigan.  The proposed pipeline would serve distribution companies, industrial energy consumers and natural gas-fired power generators in the Ohio, Michigan and Ontario areas.   Construction would follow existing utility corridors and 50-foot wide easements already acquired by the partners.  Pending market demand and the necessary permitting and approval process, the project is expected to be operating as early as November 2016.  For more information, click here.
