The Magnolia Compressor Station began operation in 1959. It’s one of two LG&E natural gas compressor stations that allow LG&E to store, process and transport natural gas from storage to the distribution system that delivers the natural gas to customers.
The compressor station covers about 32 acres near the community of Magnolia. The facility currently includes six compressors, three natural gas underground storage reservoirs, gas processing plants and high-pressure gas transmission lines.
In total, LG&E serves about 321,000 natural gas customers.
