FERC: NEXUS Spill Prevention Plan Can Be Modified

Posted on

FERC has approved Enbridge’s variance request to modify its Spill Prevention Control and Countermeasure Plan for the Nexus Gas Transmission Pipeline Project to clarify that secondary containment is required for portable fuel burning equipment operating within 100 feet of wetlands or waterbodies to prevent spills.

The Nexus Gas Transmission Pipeline Project consists of the construction of an approximately 255-mile interstate natural gas transmission pipeline that will deliver 1.5 billion cubic feet per day of clean-burning natural gas from receipt points in eastern Ohio to existing pipeline system interconnects in southeastern Michigan.

The project is expected to be placed in service in 2018.
