Abstract

This article considers the efforts of local jurisdictions to influence the routing of a natural gas pipeline through Ohio. In particular, it evaluates the largely unsuccessful efforts of the City of Green, Ohio, to work with other jurisdictions and the judicial and administrative processes to move the Nexus/Spectra Energy pipeline away from Green to a less densely populated area.

Keywords: pipeline, local government, natural gas act, energy, oil and gas
