Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP is partnering with Energy Transfer Partners LP to develop a 187-mile gas pipeline from Arkansas to Mississippi.
Houston-based Kinder Morgan and Dallas-based Energy Transfer Partners anticipate the 2 billion-cubic-feet-per-day line, which will cost $1.3 billion, will be open by early 2011.
The 50/50 joint venture will originate in Conway County, Ark., and run to the Trunkline Gas Co. line in Quitman County, Miss.
“Adding new pipeline access and capacity in the Fayetteville Shale through projects like FEP is important in meeting America’s future energy needs and limiting future hurricane interruptions to the marketplace,” said KMP Chairman and CEO Richard Kinder.
