The Flanagan South Pipeline project is moving forward as scheduled. Click to hear KMZU’s Sarah Scott talk to spokesperson Kevin O’Connor:
The project will cut through portions of Oklahoma, Kansas, Missouri and Illinois. Some big decisions are expected to be made in the next few weeks and prior to the beginning of construction. “We are still in the process of obtaining state and federal permits needed to construct the line, ” said O’Connor, “This month we are in the process of securing our mainline contractor who will be involved in developing and constructing the pipeline for us.”
Despite a bit of a waiting process, work is being accomplished. “The pipe yards are going into place and, once that’s done, we’re still looking at a May time-frame to start with the construction of the facilities,” said O’Connor, “The mainline pipeline construction will begin in August, so everything is moving along nicely.”
The pipeline is expected to be in service by mid-2014.
