The Cochin pipeline is an 1,900-mile, 12 inch (outer diameter), multiproduct pipeline system, 100%-owned by Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (aka KMEP), that transports natural gas liquids (NGLs) such as propane, ethane, and butane from a Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta storage facility in Canada to the refining and petrochemical center at Sarnia, Ontario.

The Cochin pipeline traverses the U.S. states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, North Dakota, and Ohio before crossing the U.S.-Canada border into Sarnia. It has a capacity of 70,000 bbl/d, 31 pump stations each spaced 60 miles apart, and 5 propane terminals in the U.S. It transports only propane. Underground storage is available at both the Fort Saskatchewan and Sarnia ends of the pipeline both from KMEP and third parties.
