A Project Ahead of Its Time
Proposed in 2013 as a solution to move natural gas liquids from the Utica and Marcellus Shale producing areas to the growing petrochemical market in the U.S. Gulf Coast, the Bluegrass Pipeline included constructing approximately 600 miles of pipeline from Pennsylvania to Kentucky and converting approximately 600 miles of existing natural gas pipeline from Kentucky to Louisiana to carry natural gas liquids.
Due to an insufficient level of firm customer commitments to ship products on the pipeline, the project and associated capital spending were suspended in May 2014.
The need to move NGLs from the liquids-rich Northeast region is very real and an important component of enabling the manufacturing renaissance in America. We continue to engage in discussions with potential customers and still believe the Bluegrass Pipeline project is the best long-term solution in the marketplace.
Bluegrass Pipeline appears to be a project that’s ahead of its time.
