The Tennessee Gas Pipeline Co, LLC is planning to abandon two natural gas pipelines that run from Louisiana to Columbiana County in eastern Ohio.
The two lines will be transferred to Utica Marcellus Texas Pipeline LLC and will be switched to natural gas liquids from the Utica and Marcellus shales.
The project calls for abandonment of 964 miles of pipelines.
The company operates six parallel pipelines that transport natural gas from the Gulf of Mexico to Northeast markets.
The abandonment must be approved by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
Details of the $412 million project are outlined in a Federal Register listing.
New compressor stations would be built in Ohio in Mahoning, Jackson, Morgan and Tuscarawas counties.
