Description:

The Federal Railroad Administration (FRA) is completing an Environmental Assessment for the construction of the Appalachian Natural Gas Liquids (NGL) Hub Rail Transloading Facility in Monroe County, OH. The proposed Appalachian NGL Hub Rail Transloading Facility Project (the Project) would be constructed by Ohio River Partners Shareholder LLC (doing business as Long Ridge Energy Terminal [LRET]) to support the continued need for transportation of NGL to end-use markets. The Project consists of two parts: (1) the construction of a new transloading facility (the Transloading Facility) in Hannibal, OH, for which FRA has awarded funds to Monroe County; and (2) the construction of an associated, privately-funded 10-inch diameter pipeline (the NGL Pipeline). The NGL Pipeline would transport NGL from the existing gas processing facility owned by Blue Racer Midstream (Blue Racer) in Natrium, WV, crossing under the Ohio River into Ohio and ultimately terminating approximately 5.9 miles to the southeast at the new Transloading Facility. The Transloading Facility would facilitate loading NGL from the pipeline onto railcars for shipment out of the region to processing facilities and end-use markets.
