The Ohio Pipeline Energy Network (“OPEN”) is an initiative spearheaded by Spectra Energy, a Houston based energy company, and partnered in Ohio by Chesapeake Energy designed to provide greater interconnectivity between the Utica and Marcellus shales in Ohio to the rest of the country. The project will involve the building of approximately 70 miles of new pipeline in Ohio, which will likley begin in Carroll County and travel south through the state. The companies involved are hopeful that the new pipeline could be in service by late 2014.
The OPEN project brings together the largest producer and leaseholder in the Utica shale play, the largest power generator in the region and the premier pipeline company with over 60 years of safe and reliable operational history in the state of Ohio. The project is anticipated to deliver substantial investment in energy infrastructure in the state through mineral leasing and development and construction of pipeline gathering and transportation infrastructure, as well as create significant jobs and lasting tax revenue for the state.
