Kinder Morgan recently received approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission for a $412 million project, according to Argus Media. The company will convert a 964-mile stretch of existing pipeline to carry natural gas from the Utica and Marcellus shale plays to Texas.
The project will utilize infrastructure on Kinder Morgan’s Tennessee Gas Pipeline system to transport propane, butane, natural gasoline and natural gas liquids from processing facilities near Scio, Ohio. In addition, it includes building 200 miles of new pipeline from Louisiana to Texas.
The project is expected to be completed by the end of next year.
