DETROIT (AP) -- Plans are in the works for a new natural gas transmission pipeline that could pass through Michigan on its way to Ontario, Canada.

The Detroit Free Press reports the proposed new gas pipeline project would partially track along the same route as a major oil pipeline that's being replaced across Michigan's Lower Peninsula.

Company spokeswoman Vicki Granado says the natural gas project by ET Rover Pipeline, a subsidiary of Energy Transfer Partners, is in a pre-filing process. Another application is due to the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission in January.

The company projects that the pipeline will create more than 5,000 temporary construction jobs and 30 to 40 additional permanent jobs. About 150 miles of the pipeline would be in Michigan. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
