natural gas pipeline transmission system
Additional pipeline transportation infrastructure is needed in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada to support the growing demand for clean-burning natural gas and to offset the decline in traditional western Canadian supplies.
To meet this need, Nexus Gas Transmission (NEXUS) is constructing an approximately 255-mile interstate natural gas transmission pipeline to deliver 1.5 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of clean-burning natural gas from receipt points in eastern Ohio to existing pipeline system interconnects in southeastern Michigan.
The lead developers for NEXUS have secured significant market interest in new natural gas supplies in Ohio, Michigan, Chicago and Ontario to provide increased energy diversity, security and reliability across these regions. Specifically, the project will transport emerging Appalachian shale gas supplies directly to consumers in northern Ohio; southeastern Michigan; and the Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada.
By expanding access to natural gas in these markets, NEXUS will provide consumers across the region with affordable, cleaner-burning and domestically-abundant natural gas to help meet the growing demand for cleaner power generation, industrial and commercial use, and home heating.

Natural gas touches nearly every aspect of our daily lives. It powers our homes and businesses with clean, affordable electricity, and it heats and cools them, too. Natural gas fuels many of our municipal transportation fleets and the trucks that deliver goods to market. It provides the raw material for many of the products we use, including the fertilizer farmers use to grow our food. In short, natural gas is vital to every part of our daily lives. Natural gas is energy for life.
