NEXUS Gas Transmission Project receives US FERC certificate
The NEXUS Gas Transmission Project has received a US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity.
The FERC certificate will allow NEXUS to move forward with its Interstate Natural Gas Pipeline Project, authorising it – subject to certain conditions – to begin final preparations to construct and operate facilities, and to lease capacity in Enbridge’s Texas Eastern, DTE Energy’s DTE Gas, and the Vector pipeline systems.
The pipeline will run for approximately 257 miles (413 km), from receipt points in eastern Ohio to existing pipeline interconnects in southeastern Michigan, delivering 1.5 billion cubic feet (42.4 million m3) of natural gas supplies to northern Ohio, southeastern Michigan, the Chicago Hub in Illinois, and the Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada.
Nexus plans to construct and operate the 36 inch (914 mm) diameter pipeline beginning at the existing Kensington Processing Plant in Hanover Township in Columbiana County, Ohio, extending through to connect with DTE Gas at the Ypsilanti Township in Washtenaw County, Michigan.
It will also construct four new compressor stations and a 0.9 mile (1.44 km), 36 inch pipeline, connecting to Kinder-Morgan’s Tennessee Gas Pipeline.
NEXUS plans to place the project into service in 2018.
