Stretching across northern Ohio, the NEXUS natural gas pipeline is expected to begin service late in the third quarter of this year, according to Kallanish Energy.
At the beginning of the month, the company announced that its pipeline is 80 percent complete and on schedule. All mainline welding and mainline walling have been completed, along with 16-of-18 planned horizontal directional drilling holes under rivers and highways that have been completed for the pipeline.
The 256-mile pipeline will move Utica and Marcellus natural gas from the Appalachian Basin to the Midwest, the Gulf Coast and Ontario. The project is estimated to cost $2.6 billion.
