Nine new pipelines that would travel through the Huntington, West Virginia area are proposed due to the growth of the state's natural gas industry, reports the Herald-Dispatch in Huntington.

The proposed Appalachian Storage Hub, which would serve six pipelines originating in Pennsylvania, is also among the projects under consideration. For more, read the full story.
