American federal agency OKs gas pipeline project fought by residents


CLEVELAND — A federal agency in the U.S. has approved the construction of a high-pressure natural gas pipeline that's drawn intense opposition from some Ohio residents concerned about safety and property rights.

The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in Washington on Friday granted a partnership between Calgary, Alberta-based Enbridge and Detroit-based DTE Energy a certificate of public convenience and necessity for the project.

The $2 billion NEXUS Gas Transmission pipeline is designed to carry gas from shale fields in Appalachia across northern Ohio and into Michigan and Ontario, Canada.

The 402-kilometre-long pipeline will be capable of carrying 42.5 million cubic meters of gas per day.

A NEXUS official says the approval is a "testament" to the company's "strong history of consultation."

An opposition leader says the fight isn't over.
