The recent hot topic in Ohio for landowners has been about oil and gas lease agreements and now pipelines. The number one thing a land owner can do is to become educated and familiar with the ins and outs of any type of lease agreement. Listed below are some very helpful websites and pdf's that you can check out for more information on these subjects.

Pipeline Information


Wayne County has the potential to have several transmission pipelines installed in the near future.  Several pipelines have been proposed for construction and are in the preliminary stages of design.  Impacted landowners may have been contacted by pipeline representatives or received correspondence.  Names of some of the projects include Nexus, ET Rover, and Kinder Morgan Utopia East and West.  The Sunoco pipeline was installed in 2015.

 Who to contact if you are a LANDOWNER concerned about FERC Jurisdictional Projects... 
 To receive assistance with disputes involving the construction and operation of FERC jurisdictional projects, landowners should contact the Commission's Landowner Helpline Toll Free at 1-877-337-2237 or by email at LandownerHelp@ferc.gov


 Starting in 2017 - ET Rover will be the first  breaking ground and moving forward in Wayne County. We will try to keep landowners up to date as best as we can - and pass on any information. Feel free to contact our office and stop by and we can try to answer questions or send you in the right direction.



Nexus  is proposed for the northeast corner of Wayne County.  It will be up to a 36" diameter pipe for natural gas transmission.  We do have a detailed map of the proposed route. Anyone may stop at our office to view that map during office hours.

ET Rover is proposed to travel through Wayne County from West to East from Ashland County to Stark Co.  This project involves two 42" diameter pipes for natural gas transmission.  We have copies of maps in our office as does the Wayne County Library, City of Wooster, and impacted townships, within the proposed route.  The Wayne County Auditor also has the proposed route as a GIS overlay on their website.  To use the Auditor GIS, click the link below, click the map tab middle top of GIS page,  then click the green layers button.  A box will open, click the triangle next to GIS data, then click the box next to Rover Pipeline Project.  You can zoom in to look at more specific information.
