Kinder Morgan Announces Extension for Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline Binding Open Season
Kinder Morgan, Inc. (NYSE: KMI) today announced it will extend its
current binding open season to review shipper comments and interest
received to date, as well as continue to seek commitments for the
proposed Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline (UMTP) project, which would
transport natural gas liquids and condensate produced from the Utica and
Marcellus basins to delivery points along the Texas Gulf Coast,
including connectivity to a Kinder Morgan dock located along the Houston
Ship Channel. The binding open season scheduled to end today will now
end at 5 p.m. Central Time on Dec. 15, 2015.
“We continue to receive strong interest from shippers for this
opportunity to transport products from the Utica and Marcellus basins to
the Gulf Coast,” said Don Lindley, president of KMI’s Natural Gas
Liquids (NGL), Products Pipelines. “This extension allows Kinder Morgan
to align our transportation solution with shipper interests based on the
feedback we’ve received on the project.”
The proposed project would involve the abandonment and conversion of 964
miles of natural gas service on KMI’s existing Tennessee Gas Pipeline,
the construction of approximately 200 miles of new pipeline from
Louisiana to Texas, new storage in Ohio and 120 miles of new laterals to
provide basin connectivity.
The approximately $4 billion UMTP project will be designed to transport
propane, butanes, natural gasoline, y-grade and condensate in batches
along the system, with a maximum design capacity of 430,000 barrels per
day. Subject to shipper commitments and timely regulatory approvals, the
pipeline will be in service by the fourth quarter of 2018.
Prospective shippers may contact Mike Sims, director of NGL Business
Development, via email at email@example.com
or via phone at (713) 420-4731. More information is available on the
UMTP web page at www.kindermorgan.com/pages/projects/umtp.
