Map and Details Slowly Emerging on $1.5 Billion Pipeline Set to Cut Through Ohio

From the Akron Beacon Journal:
Local and company officials have released few details about the project, with Spectra Energy spokeswoman Andrea Grover saying it was simply too early in the process. But the map and interviews with parties involved in preliminary talks revealed this information about the pipeline:
• The eastern terminus would be near Carrollton, an area where natural gas from Ohio’s developing Utica shale formation appears to be plentiful.
• The pipeline — expected to be 36 inches or larger in diameter — would enter Stark County south of Alliance near the border between Washington and Paris townships. It would run west across southern Marlboro and Lake townships. Its length in Stark would total 19.8 miles.
• In Summit County, it would run west for 12 miles through central Green and New Franklin into Wayne County.
• When crossing under Nimisila Reservoir between Green and New Franklin in southern Summit County, the pipeline would be buried at a depth up to 80 feet.
• The route would run north of Doylestown in Chippewa Township and south of Wadsworth; then northwest across Medina County through Wadsworth, Guilford, Montville, Lafayette, York and Litchfield townships before entering Lorain County.
• A total of 22 miles of the new pipeline would be in Medina County.
• Price tag for the project is estimated at $1.2 billion to $1.5 billion.
• Gas transport could begin as early as November 2016, subject to market demand and numerous regulatory approvals.
• Three companies are behind the project: Detroit-based DTE Energy, Houston-based Spectra Energy Corp.; and Calgary-based Enbridge Inc. Officials from those companies met with government officials in several local meetings that consultant Louis G. Berroteran, of the Akron-based Berroteran Group, helped to arrange.
