Williams Approves Bluegrass Pipeline Project
July 8, 2013
According to a recent article in the Tulsa Business and Legal News, Williams’ board of directors has approved the development of a natural gas liquids pipeline which will primarily connect supply from the Marcellus and Utica shale formations to the demands of growing petrochemical markets along the Gulf Coast and in the Northeast. Plans for the project include construction of the pipeline, a new fractionation plant and storage facilities. Boardwalk Pipeline Partners is also involved in the project. The companies, which are currently tackling permitting, public consultation and right-of-way acquisition, expect the pipeline to be in service in late 2015.
