Pipeline News – The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) recently approved construction of the 255-mile NEXUS Transmission Pipeline Project, which will deliver clean-burning natural gas from receipt points in eastern Ohio to existing pipeline system interconnects in southeastern Michigan.
NEXUS has secured market interest in new natural gas supplies in Ohio, Michigan, Chicago and Ontario to provide increased energy, diversity, security and reliability across these regions. Specifically, the project will deliver emerging Appalachian shale gas supplies directly to consumers in northern Ohio, southeastern Michigan, the Chicago Hub in Illinois and the Dawn Hub in Ontario.
Estey encouraged anyone conducting digging to call 811 before doing so to determine where underground lines, like the one struck, are buried. It wasn’t clear whether the contractor involved in the outage had placed an 811 call before breaking ground.
