Williams and Boardwalk Announce Joint Venture to Build NGL Pipeline in Marcellus and Utica
March 7, 2013
Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP recently announced that they would be forming a joint venture to develop a pipeline that would transport natural gas liquids (NGLs) from the Marcellus and Utica to petrochemical and export facilities on the Gulf Coast and in the Northeast. The project, known as the Bluegrass Pipeline, would include constructing a new NGL pipeline in West Virginia and Ohio to interconnect with an existing gas transmission line in Kentucky; converting a portion of that gas transmission line to NGL service; and constructing new fractionation and additional pipeline and storage facilities in Louisiana. Williams and Boardwalk expect the Bluegrass Pipeline to be placed into service in the second half of 2015. Additional information on the project is available here.
