The green line shows the existing location of the Tennessee Gas Pipeline. Kinder Morgan and MarkWest Utica are working on a project that would convert a portion of this pipeline to carry natural gas liquids instead of natural gas.
First steps taken in new pipeline project

Last year, two companies announced a joint project that would convert 900 miles of the Tennessee Gas Pipeline — including 19.7 miles in Marion County — to carry up to 200,000 barrels of natural gas liquids daily.
At this time, the Tennessee Gas Pipeline carries natural gas, but Kinder Morgan Energy Partners and MarkWest Utica EMG have plans to close down part of that pipeline so it can be switched to carry NGLs instead.
Marion County officials are aware of the situation, although it’s not yet clear what can be done in response.
