CHATTOOGA COUNTY, GA (WRCB) -

A proposed high-volume natural gas pipeline linking Maury County, Tenn., to Fayette County, Ga., south of Atlanta aims to expand supplies to the market around Georgia's capital city and the rest of the Southeast.

In the Chattanooga area, the pipeline's projected path bears southeast out of Maury County through Marshall, Bedford, Moore, and Franklin counties in Tennessee before crossing the Alabama state line into Jackson and DeKalb. Then it crosses into Georgia's Chattooga, Floyd, Bartow, Paulding, Cobb, Fulton Clayton and Fayette counties as it heads through Atlanta.

Spectra spokeswoman Andrea Grover said the pipeline, dubbed the "Renaissance Project," will have several proposed lines branching off the main line to potential customers along the route. Grover said she could not discuss "commercial aspects" of routing.

"We are continuing to work with multiple potential customers to design a project to fit their supply demand needs," Grover said in emailed comments on the project.
