Columbia Gas Transmission has filed an application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to get permission for the construction of the Buckeye XPress natural gas pipeline, according to Marcellus Drilling News.

The Buckeye XPress natural gas pipeline project would include construction of 66 miles of new pipeline to replace old lines in Ohio’s Vinton, Jackson, Gallia and Lawrence counties, as well as pipeline replacement work in West Virginia’s Wayne County.

If approved and completed the pipeline will send natural gas from the Marcellus and Utica shale region to the Gulf Coast via an interconnection at Leach, Kentucky.
