Williams pipeline has secured land deals in nine Kentucky counties
- The Bluegrass natural gas pipeline in Kentucky reportedly has secured land-use deals in parts of nine of 13 counties along its proposed path; Williams Cos. (WMB +0.7%) is one of the energy firms behind the project.
- The path would bypass property owned by a Roman Catholic abbey in central Kentucky after the monks who live there refused to allow surveyors on their land.
- Environmental groups and local residents oppose the project, which would build a 24-inch thick underground pipeline to carry natural gas liquids from Ohio and Pennsylvania to an existing connection in Kentucky that runs to the Gulf of Mexico.
