Beer would be nice, but I don’t think that is what is going to be flowing through the proposed Nexus Transmission Pipeline.
The Nexus pipeline project is a joint venture between DTE Energy and Spectra Energy to move 1.5 Bcf (Billion cubic feet) a day of natural gas from southeastern Ohio (Utica and Marcellus shale) eventually ending at the Dawn Hub in southern Ontario, Canada.
Additional pipeline transportation infrastructure is needed in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada to support the growing demand for clean‐burning natural gas.
To meet this need, Nexus Gas Transmission (NEXUS) proposed to construct an approximate 255‐mile interstate natural gas transmission pipeline. The pipeline would transport gas directly from the Appalachian Basin and provide low cost supplies while providing increased supply diversity, security and reliability to customers in Ohio, Michigan, and Canada.
A number of industrial facilities, gas utilities and power generators in these areas have also recently signed interconnect agreements with the project. If approved, gas is projected to start flowing in November of 2017.
