Kinder Morgan: Cochin can transport propane at full capacity

February 5, 2014 By    

Kinder Morgan’s 1,900-mile-long Cochin Pipeline, which traverses the Midwest to five U.S. propane terminals, was out of service for a three-week period late last year at the height of crop drying. The disruption, related to an ongoing pipeline reversal project, forced propane marketers in need of supply to look elsewhere.

Propane has also been difficult to come by in the Midwest this winter for many of these same marketers, but Kinder Morgan said in a written statement Jan. 31 that the Cochin Pipeline is currently able to meet propane customer needs despite media reports that have indicated otherwise.

“Contrary to some erroneous reports, the Cochin Pipeline is fully operational and capable of transporting propane at full capacity, and there is propane available at our five U.S. terminals for pickup and redelivery by our shipper-customers, who own the propane in our pipeline,” Kinder Morgan wrote.

Kinder Morgan also said it has pipeline capacity available to handle shipper requests for additional propane.

“The current issues in the propane market are not a result of the Cochin Pipeline system’s capacity or operations, and we stand ready to provide additional transportation and terminalling services to our shipper-customers to meet the propane needs in the markets they serve,” Kinder Morgan continued.

A Kinder Morgan representative said Feb. 5 that the Cochin Pipeline reversal project is on schedule and expected to be in service this July.
