U.S. energy regulators on Friday approved part of Canadian energy company Enbridge Inc’s request to put more of its $2.6 billion NEXUS natural gas pipeline from Ohio to Michigan into service.
In a filing, the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) said it approved the company’s request to put the Clyde compressor station in Sandusky County, Ohio, into service, but not the Wadsworth compressor in Medina County, Ohio.
FERC said once NEXUS demonstrates restoration progress at Wadsworth, it would reconsider the company’s request to put that facility in service.
Enbridge sought FERC permission to put both compressors into service on Oct. 19.
NEXUS is one of several gas pipelines designed to connect growing output in the Marcellus and Utica shale basins in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio with customers in other parts of the United States and Canada.Read more by clicking here.
