Southern Star proposes to replace the entire 17.2 miles of pipe with 10-inch diameter pipeline in two phases over a two-year period. Southern Star states that the replacement project will include the installation of a pig launcher, which will allow for future cleaning and integrity testing of the lateral, when Phase II is completed with an associated pig launcher installed.
