Two energy companies are halting a massive underground pipeline project for Kentucky that drew heavy opposition from residents and environmentalists.

Williams Co. and Boardwalk Pipeline Partners said in a web posting Monday that they were not able to assemble a large enough customer base for the natural gas liquids that would be delivered by the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline.

Kentucky's portion of the line would travel about 180 miles through more than a dozen counties. The pipeline would have connected the shale gas-rich areas in the northeast to the Gulf of Mexico.

But opposition to the proposal was swift and widespread, coming from activists, residents near the planned route and even a group of Marion County nuns.

In the web posting, the companies say they are "not investing additional capital at this time."
