Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline Project
Kinder Morgan continues to develop its Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline (UMTP) project which is designed to transport purity and mixed natural gas liquids produced from the Utica and Marcellus areas. Products will be transported in batches to delivery points along the Texas Gulf Coast. In February 2015, the company filed for abandonment of a Tennessee Gas Pipeline (TGP) line with the FERC. The proposed project involves the abandonment and conversion of 964 miles of natural gas service on TGP, the construction of approximately 200 miles of new pipeline from Louisiana to Texas, and new storage capacity and laterals in Ohio, all with an anticipated in-service date in the fourth quarter of 2018. The pipeline will provide connectivity to major processing and fractionation hubs in the basin and will have a maximum design capacity of 430,000 barrels per day. On June 17, 2015, the company launched a binding open season to secure commitments from potential shippers.
More details regarding the Open Season will be provided to those entities that have executed a confidentiality agreement and provided a bona fide non-binding indication of interest.
