    DTE Energy, Enbridge, Spectra to develop pipeline connecting Utica Shale gas to US Midwest, Ontario

    Spectra Energy

    DTE Energy, Enbridge Inc., and Spectra Energy Corp. have executed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to jointly develop the NEXUS Gas Transmission (NGT) system to move growing supplies of Ohio Utica shale gas to markets in the US Midwest, including Ohio and Michigan, and Ontario, Canada.

    The proposed NGT project will originate in northeastern Ohio, include approximately 250 miles of large diameter pipe, and be capable of transporting one billion cubic feet per day of natural gas. The line will follow existing utility corridors to an interconnect in Michigan and utilize the existing Vector Pipeline system to reach the Ontario market. Upon completion of the project, Spectra Energy will become a 20% owner in Vector Pipeline, a joint venture between DTE Energy and Enbridge.

    The new pipeline will serve local distribution companies, power generators and industrial users in the Ohio, Michigan and Ontario markets. It will include interconnects with Michigan Consolidated Gas Company, Consumers Energy and, through the Vector Pipeline, the Enbridge Tecumseh Gas Storage facility and Union Gas’ Dawn Hub, both in Ontario.

    The partners have received expressions of interest for a significant level of firm capacity to anchor the project. An open season for the project is planned for fourth quarter 2012, with a targeted in-service as early as November 2015, depending on final market demand and commitments.
