Massive pipeline planned to pump Ohio shale products to Texas
A new venture of the nation's largest midstream companies will ship Ohio's Utica products 1,225 miles to Texas
Story by JOANNA RICHARDS


 
Kinder Morgan is planning to pump natural gas liquids from from Uhrichsville, Ohio area to Mont Belvieu, Texas. The new Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline will convert 1,005 miles of the company's 24- and 26-inch Tennessee Gas Pipeline system and add an additional 220 miles of new pipeline.

In The Region:

Plans are shaping up for a major pipeline to move natural gas liquids from eastern Ohio to the Gulf Coast.

From Ohio Public Radio member station WCPN, Joanna Richards reports.

The company Kinder Morgan is giving new details about its plan for what it calls the Utica-Marcellus Texas Pipeline Project.

The pipeline will carry natural gas liquids like ethane, propane and butane from Tuscarawas County to processing facilities in Texas, according to a fact sheet on Kinder Morgan’s website. The pipeline will aid producers in Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia in getting their products to market.

Mike Chadsey is a spokesman for the Ohio Oil and Gas Association. He says the new pipeline will move more products more efficiently than the existing system. "This is going to be like a super highway," according to Chadsey.

And, he says, it shows continuing investment in the region’s transport and processing facilities – what the industry calls “midstream” infrastructure.

Chadsey says, "Kinder Morgan is really a giant in that industry. They’ve got large diameter pipe all across the country. So when you have somebody of that caliber operating in Ohio, that’s a good sign.

Kinder Morgan says the pipeline should be operating by mid-2017. Its initial capacity will be 150,000 barrels per day, but that could be expanded.

Listener Comments:

This needs stopped. Ohioans pay the price, putting up with pollution, leaks, explosions, and the top one percent profit from exporting fracked product to China.
