Ohio officials have signed off on the construction of a 250-mile-long gas transmission line that would be another added boon to the state's Utica Shale gas production.
The pipeline across the northern part of the state would connect with other existing lines and storage facilities in Michigan and Canada and would cost about $1.5 billion, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The line, officials said, is expected to add new customers in both Michigan and Ontario, and perhaps other mid-western areas as well, to the state's emerging shale gas industry.
Houston-based Spectra Energy Corp., Enbridge Inc. of Canada, and DTE Energy of Detroit  announced their joint plan on Tuesday to build the pipeline, which they said would use existing gas and power line right-of-ways to lessen the impact on the environment.
The agreement for construction, however, still has to be approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
According to Enbridge spokesman Larry Springer, the target date for completion of the project is November of 2015. When completed, he said the line would be capable of moving at least 1 billion cubic feet of gas every day.
Robert Nichols, a spokesman for Republican Gov. John Kasich, said the pipeline represents an  “enormous investment in Ohio and more jobs for Ohioans.”
