Pipeline expansion would move Ohio natural gas to Louisiana

Natural gas pulled from Ohio’s Utica shale play could be moved to the Gulf Coast with the expansion of an existing pipeline by Kentucky-based Texas Gas Transmission LLC, reports the Akron Beacon-Journal. The newspaper says the Ohio-Louisiana Access Project would run from Lebanon (in southwest Ohio) to Perrysville, Louisiana. The company says that, pending approval by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, construction would begin in August 2015 and the pipeline would go into service in June 2016.
