A few months after one pipeline through Muskingum County was completed, another pipeline project was suspended indefinitely.
The Bluegrass pipeline, which would transport natural gas liquids from shale-producing areas in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania to the northeastern U.S., was postponed by a year in March, said Sara Delgado, spokeswoman for Williams, one of the companies behind the project.
Then on Monday, a news release was posted on the project’s website — bluegrasspipeline.com — by the companies behind the project, Williams and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners LP, stating the project was indefinitely suspended. No new capital will be invested into the project at this time.
Delgado said the suspension took place because the customers for the project — the shale-producing areas in Ohio, West Virginia and Pennsylvania — did not commit to the project at this time.
