Kinder Morgan is evaluating whether to build a second pipeline to take natural gas liquids from Ohio’s Utica Shale to Ontario.
The second pipeline, dubbed Utopia West, is in the very early stages of consideration, according to a company spokeswoman.
The Houston-based midstream giant already has begun work on its $500-million Utica To Ontario Pipeline Access (Utopia) East project, which will ship ethane and ethane-propane mixtures from Ohio to Canada.
That pipeline is a 240-mile, 12-inch diameter pipeline originating in Harrison County, Ohio, that will connect to Kinder Morgan’s Cochin Pipeline near Riga, Michigan. From there, Kinder Morgan plans to move product eastward to Windsor, Ontario.
Utopia East is expected to be in service in January 2018 and have an initial 50,000 barrels per day of capacity with the capacity for expansion to more than 75,000 b/d.You can click here to read more.
