The Nexus Gas Transmission pipeline will provide an avenue for transporting natural gas supplies from the Utica shale through Michigan and into Canada. The 30- to 36-inch diameter pipeline would be capable of carrying 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day. The pipeline could possibly be in service as early as late 2015.

The proposed path for the NEXUS project will consist of a newly-constructed greenfield pipeline that will extend approximately 250 miles from receipt points in eastern Ohio to interconnects with the existing pipeline grid in southeastern Michigan. As proposed, the path will utilize both existing and expansion capacity on the interstate pipeline system owned by Vector Pipeline, L.P. (Vector) to access the Dawn Hub in Ontario. The proposed path will utilize existing corridors and infrastructure for most of its route to facilitate timely and efficient construction and to minimize environmental and local impacts.

Counties possibly affected: Lucas, Wood, Erie, Ottawa, Sandusky, Huron, Loraine, Medina, Wayne, Summit, Portage, Stark, Tuscarawas, Holmes, Carroll, Harrison, Jefferson, Columbiana, Trumbull, Mahoning.
