Kinder Morgan's Utopia Pipeline, stretching from Ohio to Canada, has been put into service.
The pipeline allows for product delivery of ethane from Harrison County, Ohio, to Windsor, Ontario, Canada.
The pipeline system has an initial capacity of 50,000 barrels per day and can be expanded to more than 75,000 bpd.
Don Lindley, president of natural gas liquids, products pipelines, says: 'The project team, in coordination with local, state and federal agencies, has done a tremendous job developing a project that provides ethane takeaway capacity from the Utica shale to the growing petrochemical industry.'
