Oil Pipeline Coming to Abilene

Abilene, TX -- Construction for an oil and gas pipeline will start up in the near future for Abilene.  

The council voted for approval yesterday for BridgeTex Pipeline Company to place the pipeline under Thompson Parkway. 

According to spokesperson Tom Byers, it will serve to transport petroleum from West Texas to Houston and Texas City. 

He says this pipeline can provide some economic benefits, such as more jobs and increased demand at local restaurants and hotels.
