Kentucky gas explosion renews fears over Williams Co. project

An underground transmission pipeline carrying natural gas exploded yesterday in southern Kentucky, sending two people to the hospital and destroying nearby homes.

The explosion has renewed fears of some residents who oppose the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline project, which would stretch ~180 miles through the state and carry flammable natural gas liquids to a connector that leads to the Gulf of Mexico.

Officials at Williams Co. (WMB), one of the companies behind the project, say the pipeline would be safe.
