Ohio judge denies gas pipeline firm's request to survey land

The Associated Press

A northeast Ohio judge has denied a company's request to immediately survey nearly 60 properties where it is proposing to build a high-pressure natural gas pipeline.

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — A northeast Ohio judge has denied a company's request to immediately survey nearly 60 properties where it is proposing to build a high-pressure natural gas pipeline.

The judge's ruling Wednesday says she won't grant NEXUS Gas Transmission a 14-day window to survey 56 properties in Summit County but will instead hold a trial in October to hear arguments about whether the Houston-based company should be granted access.

NEXUS is seeking to build a 250-mile pipeline that it says would carry as much as 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day across northern Ohio and into Michigan and Ontario, Canada.

The company must survey all the properties along its proposed route before the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission can approve the project.
