Kinder Morgan Energy Partners said Wednesday it expects to move fuels blended with five percent biodiesel across the South in the Plantation oil products pipeline this year.
The company, one of the largest pipeline companies in the United States, recently moved 20,000 barrels of the blended fuel via a Mississippi-to-South Carolina segment of the line in a test it called a success.
The Plantation line moves oil products from refineries along the Gulf of Mexico to the Southeast. Kinder expects to move the blends, known as B5, to markets in Alabama, Georgia, the Carolinas, and Virginia.
