Pipelines on ‘Town Hall Ohio’

One of Ohio’s most recently developed economic engines is the huge supply of shale oil, gas, and bi-products. But for it to be useful, it has to be moved from where it’s drilled to where it’ll be used for fuel, manufacturing and other needs. For the most part, that transportation is via pipeline. There are some 2 million miles of pipelines across the United States, and the operator of much of that system is the Texas based company Kinder Morgan. They’re the largest energy infrastructure company in America. And they have in place a plan to put in a new pipeline stretching across the breadth of the state. On this episode of Town Hall Ohio, their vice president, Allen Fore joins us to talk about infrastructure, safety, jobs and environmental protection.
