Kinder Morgan Energy Partners and MarkWest, two large energy/ pipeline companies, have a plan to re-purpose the Tennessee Gas Pipeline from its current use for natural gas to carry natural gas liquids (NGLs), a byproduct of natural gas extraction. The pipe would carry the NGLs from Ohio to the Gulf Coast for processing and export.
This 70 year old pipe would be repurposed to carry a product that is much more explosive and hazardous than natural gas.
The Tennessee Gas Pipeline currently runs from Ohio into Northeast Kentucky, following a route close to Morehead, Richmond, Danville, Campbellsville and Glasgow before entering Tennessee on its way to Louisiana. Eighteen Kentucky counties would be affected by the newly proposed pipeline. When fully operational it could carry nearly 17 million gallons of NGLs per day across 256.4 miles of Kentucky
