 Allen talked about the pipeline running through the Texas Hill Country. It will be a 42" OD line that will be 432 miles long. The reason this line is needed it the fact that in west Texas they are currently flaring gas to the rate of 750 Mcf. This will be gathered and sent to the gulf coast for the growing market LNG facilities.

 One fact I thought interesting was that all the land owners were paid and contracts sighned. Another question was ask about can they put oil in the pipeline. The answer was no. Oil and Gas pipelines are totally different. Also if there was a leak the gas would go into the air since it is lighter.

 It seems that Kinder Morgan has done the due diligence on this entire project.

 The right of way (ROW) will be 50 ft. in some areas it will take an extra 100 ft to move equipment in & out. Kinder Morgan will put the land back in good shape after there done. is a website with more info
