Bluegrass Pipeline begins open season

October 31, 2013 By    

Bluegrass Pipeline LLC, a joint venture between Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP, launched a binding open season to determine industry commitments to natural gas liquids (NGLs) transportation capacity from the Marcellus and Utica shale plays to the petrochemical and export complex on the U.S. Gulf Coast. The open season began Oct. 29 and will conclude Dec. 16.

Phase one of the pipeline would provide customers with 200,000 barrels per day of mixed NGLs takeaway capacity in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Phase two would increase capacity to 400,000 barrels per day to meet market demand.

The pipeline would deliver mixed NGLs to proposed new fractionation and storage facilities – a project named Moss Lake Fractionation – that would have connectivity to petrochemical facilities and product pipelines along the coasts of Louisiana and Texas. The fractionation and storage facilities are also expected to have connectivity to a proposed new LP gas export terminal, called the Moss Lake LPG Terminal. The terminal would serve tanker ships transporting LP gas to Asian, Latin American and European markets.
