Stocks in this article: BWP WMB

Bluegrass Pipeline LLC, a joint venture between Williams (NYSE:WMB) and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners, LP (NYSE: BWP) (Boardwalk), today announced that it will be commencing a binding Open Season to determine industry commitments to natural gas liquids (NGLs) transportation capacity from the Marcellus and Utica shale plays to the petrochemical and export complex on the U.S. Gulf Coast. The Open Season will begin on Oct. 29, 2013 at 8 a.m. CDT and conclude on Dec. 16, 2013 at 5 p.m. CST.

To request a confidentiality agreement and Open Season package or ask questions about the Bluegrass Pipeline, Moss Lake Fractionation or Moss Lake LPG Terminal projects, contact Joe Edgeller with Williams at (918) 573-9917 or Joe.Edgeller@williams.com or Pat Giroir with Boardwalk at (713) 479-8061 or Patrick.Giroir@bwpmlp.com.

Phase one of Bluegrass Pipeline is being designed to provide customers with 200,000 barrels per day of mixed NGLs take-away capacity in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania. Phase two would increase capacity to 400,000 barrels per day to meet market demand, primarily by adding additional liquids pumping capacity. The pipeline would deliver mixed NGLs from these producing areas to proposed new fractionation and storage facilities that would have connectivity to petrochemical facilities and product pipelines along the coasts of Louisiana and Texas. In addition to these domestic markets, the fractionation and storage facilities are expected to have connectivity to a proposed new liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) export terminal that, based on current market conditions, would offer producers an attractive option for exporting propane and butane, which represent approximately 30 percent of the average NGL barrel.

“We have seen significant interest from the producer community regarding the value that the Bluegrass Pipeline can offer the market,” said Jim Scheel, senior vice president of corporate strategic development at Williams. “We have been in discussion with many Utica and Marcellus Shale producers during the past year and we look forward to additional customer commitments before the end of this year.”
