Nexus Pipeline Coming to Northeast Ohio

The Nexus pipeline will carry natural gas from the rich deposits in Eastern Ohio through Michigan and into Canada.  At this point the pipeline is still in the preliminary stages, but make no mistake, it is coming.  The project carries an approximatly $1.2-$1.5 billion price tag, and the three companies involved, Spectra Energy, DTE Energy, and Enbridge, are hopeful that the pipeline will be operational in late 2016.

Spectra officials have begun the process of reaching out to local governmental leaders in an effort to increase awareness and readiness for the project.  The companies must still go through a number of approval processes before they begin to contact landowners regarding the purchase of land and easements.  It is difficult to predict a timeline for this, but it is not unreasonable to believe that it could begin in 2013.
