Working with LandownersLandowner InformationInterstate natural gas transmission pipelines operate safely in agricultural communities across the United States and North America. NEXUS is committed to working with landowners in Ohio and Michigan to preserve the agricultural heritage of their communities and ensure that their land is safely maintained for the use and enjoyment of future generations.
Project VisionProject Overview & MapDemand for natural gas is growing in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada, and the region needs updated pipeline infrastructure to meet this new demand. NEXUS will provide the infrastructure necessary to deliver clean-burning natural gas for cleaner electricity, more affordable home heating, and new industry to consumers across the region.
Expanding Economic OpportunityWatch our VideoNEXUS will have a positive economic impact on communities across Ohio and Michigan. In addition to generating 6,800 jobs, more than $650 million in wages and $830 million in total economic activity, NEXUS will provide a foundation for future economic growth in the region.
Nexus Gas Transmission
Additional pipeline transportation infrastructure is needed in Ohio, Michigan and Ontario, Canada to support the growing demand for clean-burning natural gas and to offset the decline in traditional western Canadian supplies.
To meet this need, Nexus Gas Transmission (NEXUS) proposes to construct an approximately 255-mile interstate natural gas transmission pipeline to deliver 1.5 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of clean-burning natural gas from receipt points in eastern Ohio to existing pipeline system interconnects in southeastern Michigan.
The lead developers for NEXUS have secured significant market interest in new natural gas supplies in Ohio, Michigan, Chicago and Ontario to provide increased energy diversity, security and reliability across these regions. Specifically, the project will transport emerging Appalachian shale gas supplies directly to consumers in northern Ohio; southeastern Michigan; the Chicago Hub in Illinois; and the Dawn Hub in Ontario, Canada.
By expanding access to natural gas in these markets, NEXUS will provide consumers across the region with affordable, cleaner-burning and domestically-abundant natural gas to help meet the growing demand for cleaner power generation, industrial and commercial use, and home heating.

NATURAL GAS in Our Daily Lives
Natural gas touches nearly every aspect of our daily lives. It powers our homes and businesses with clean, affordable electricity, and it heats and cools them, too. Natural gas fuels many of our municipal transportation fleets and the trucks that deliver goods to market. It provides the raw material for many of the products we use, including the fertilizer farmers use to grow our food. In short, natural gas is vital to every part of our daily lives. Natural gas is energy for life.
