Kinder Morgan Energy Partners LP, Houston TX, is now transporting commercial batches of denatured ethanol along with gasoline shipments in its 16-inch Central Florida Pipeline (CFPL) between Tampa and Orlando.

In addition to the pipeline ethanol project, Kinder Morganís Products Pipeline segment has approved over $90 million in ethanol and biofuel projects, including modifications to tanks, truck racks, and related infrastructure for new or expanded ethanol and biodiesel service at various terminals in the Southeast and Pacific Northwest.
The company offers offloading, storage and blending of ethanol at its terminals in Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Illinois, Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, California, Nevada, Arizona, Washington, and Oregon.
