Planned major gas pipeline to cross northern Ohio

Bellefontaine Examiner -- CLEVELAND (AP) — Three companies have announced plans for a major pipeline to link emerging shale gas fields in eastern Ohio to energy companies and customers in the Midwest and beyond.

The 250-mile pipeline would originate in northeastern Ohio, follow existing utility corridors across the state and hook up with an existing line in Michigan. Two major pipeline corporations and a large energy company announced the joint plans Tuesday.

The 30- to 36-inch diameter pipeline would be capable of carrying 1 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day, according to Houston-based Spectra Energy, one of the three companies involved. The others are Enbridge Inc. of Canada and Detroit-based DTE Energy.

The Nexus Gas Transmission System, which will cost $1.3 billion to $1.5 billion, could be in

Kick Enbridge off this project, let the other two companies do this project safely, and it should be fine.

We do need this pipeline.
We DON'T need Enbridge to ruin it!

One of the three companies involved in this planned project is Enbridge.

This is bad news.

Enbridge has a terrible track record, numerous spills and accidents --

And after two years, their nasty spill into the Kalamazoo river at Marshall, Michigan STILL IS NOT THOROUGHLY CLEANED UP.

For this project to have a decent chance of working safely, the other two companies should break ties with Enbridge and kick them off the project.

At least gas doesn't come with the risk of a spill that can destroy soil and waterways for years. It does lessen our dependence on foreign oil. That's a good thing.

I would like to see more storage capacity in the Dakotas. I read recently they are burning off one third of NG coming out of the ground from drilling operations.

Maybe more people can get off of heating oil for their homes. It may help lowering oil prices and our dependency.

More NG pipelines = more infrastructure which will eventually help with the conversion from crude and coal to NG as a primary energy source.

Next year someone politician will declare that a DIFFERENT power source is better(think ethanol) and politicos will then decide to finance anothewr fly-by-night(think solyndra) scheme to give away TAX DOLLARS.

Maybe we should just give the money o ILLEGAL mexicans to run until they sweat and capture the heat generated to provide electric.
