NEXUS gas pipeline traveling through Columbiana County could start soon

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, D.C. -

The builders of a somewhat controversial project have informed federal authorities they are ready to start sending natural gas liquids along a 257-mile-long pipeline from Columbiana County to Michigan.

Each compressor station would take up about an acre of land in order to compress the natural gas and keep it flowing through the pipeline.

Supporters of the $2 million pipeline argued that the lack of a quick, convenient way to transport energy products has been restraining oil and gas production.

According to a letter from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC), NEXUS Gas Transmission LLC wants to put the following greenfield portions of its project into service as early as September 28 and is requesting written authorization from the Director of the Office of Energy Projects (OEP) by the 26. 

  • Greenfield Mainline Pipeline-approximately 257.5 miles of 36-inch diameter mainline pipeline, and related equipment, that originates from the Kensignation Processing Plant in Hanover Township, Columbiana County. This extends through Ohio and Michigan to connect with DTE Gas in Ypsilanti Township, Washtenaw County, Michigan. 
  • Hanoverton Compressor Station in Columbiana County.
  • Metering and regulating facilities including Kensington Processing Plant interconnect in Hanover Township, DTE Gas Company interconnect in Ypsilanti Township, Texas Eastern Transmission LP interconnect in Hanover Township and Columbia Gas of Ohio, Inc. interconnect in Sandusky County. 

NEXUS is expected to submit separate requests to the Director of the OEP to put the remaining NEXUS Project Mainline Facilities into service.

According to the letter, NEXUS confirmed that is has met all the conditions of an August 25 order to put parts of the project into service 

NEXUS anticipates it will successfully rehabilitate and restore the right-of-way and other areas affected by these facilities by the end of October. 

NEXUS said it is also committing to address all landowner issues or concerns that might arise going forward.
