Final leg of Rockies Express natural gas pipeline placed in service

NEW YORK - Construction of the final 195 miles of the eastern portion of the Rockies Express natural gas pipeline was complete and service began on Nov. 12 into eastern Ohio, pipeline partner Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP said.
Kinder Morgan owns 50 percent of the 1,679-mile line that stretches from northwestern Colorado to eastern Ohio. The entire REX pipeline, capable of delivering 1.8 billion cubic feet per day of gas, is now operational, the company said in a news release.
The final leg stretches from the Lebanon Hub in Warren County, Ohio, to Clarington, in Monroe County, Ohio.
Long-term, binding commitments had been secured for virtually all of the pipeline's capacity, the company said.
REX, one of the largest natural gas pipelines constructed in North America, is operated by Kinder Morgan. Sempra unit Sempra Pipelines and Storage and ConocoPhillips each own a 25 percent stake in REX.
