DANVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Danville City Commission has passed a resolution opposing the conversion of a natural gas pipeline to carry potentially hazardous natural gas solids through Boyle County.

The Advocate-Messenger reports (https://bit.ly/297GU7s) the resolution, passed Monday, cites concerns over the volatility of Natural Gas Solids and the potential harm a leak could cause to important local areas, like Centre College and a hospital.

The resolution opposes an application by the owner of the pipeline, Kinder Morgan, to formally abandon the pipeline for transporting natural gas - a step toward allowing the pipeline flow to be reversed for the transport of NGLs. It also asks for an environmental impact study.

Kinder Morgan’s proposal would affect the Tennessee Natural Gas Pipeline, a 960-mile, 24-inch pipeline from Louisiana to Ohio that was completed in 1944.
