Williams, Boardwalk Form Bluegrass Pipeline JV

July 2013, Vol. 240 No. 7

Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP have a joint venture agreement to continue the development process for Bluegrass Pipeline, a project to transport natural gas liquids (NGLs) from the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays to the petrochemical and export complex along the Gulf Coast as well as the developing petrochemical market in the Northeast.

Phase one of the pipeline would provide 200,000 bpd of mixed NGLs take-away capacity in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Phase two would increase capacity to 400,000 bpd to meet market demand, primarily by adding additional liquids pumping capacity.

Bluegrass Pipeline would include an NGL pipeline from Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania to interconnect with Boardwalk’s Texas Gas Transmission LLC system in Hardinsburg, KY. From there to Eunice, LA, a portion of Texas Gas would be converted from natural gas to NGL service.
