Georgia DOT declines Kinder Morgan application for Palmetto Pipeline.

Kinder Morgan, Inc. received notification that the Georgia Department of Transportation declined its application for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity associated with the proposed Palmetto Pipeline.

As proposed, Palmetto Pipeline will enable refined petroleum products to be transported from Baton Rouge, LA, Collins and Pascagoula, MS and Belton, SC to North Augusta, SC, Savannah, GA and Jacksonville, FL. The system will have a design capacity of up to 167,000 bpd and consist of a segment of expansion capacity that Palmetto will lease from Plantation Pipe Line Co. between Baton Rouge and Belton. A 360-mile pipeline from Belton to Jacksonville will also be constructed as part of the system.

"We are disappointed with the outcome of our proceedings with the Georgia DOT. We believe that we have more than adequately demonstrated that this project is in the best interests of Georgia's consumers, as it will result in lower costs and provide safer transportation of refined petroleum products to many areas in the Southeast, including specifically many communities in Georgia," said Kinder Morgan Products Pipelines President Ron McClain.
