Enterprise Products proposes Ohio pipeline to move shale ethane (fracked shale gas)
A Texas transporter of natural resources is planning a pipeline that would stretch across 13 southern Ohio counties and take ethane collected from Marcellus and Utica shale deposits to the Gulf Coast.
Nearly a quarter of Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners LPs proposed 1,230-mile pipeline would run through Ohio, crossing the Pennsylvania border into Jefferson County before exiting on the west side of the state in Butler County, north of Cincinnati. Along the way, the pipeline would touch Harrison, Tuscarawas, Coshocton, Muskingum, Licking, Fairfield, Pickaway, Fayette, Greene, Clinton and Warren counties.

The pipeline will travel through Ohio on its way to Cape Girardeau, Mo., where existing pipe will carry the ethane to Beaumont, Texas, for distribution, said Rick Rainey, Enterprises spokesman. The pipeline, with a capacity of 125,000 barrels a day, expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2014.

The Midwest leg of the line would consist of newly laid pipe and will follow Enterprises existing lines that transport diesel and jet fuel, Rainey said.

At this point, its very early, he said. We dont have a construction date. Were really at this point gathering permission to conduct surveys.
