Tallgrass Energy Announces Open Season for Pipeline Construction Project

Posted on

Tallgrass Energy has announced an open season to transport natural gas on the Cheyenne Connector Pipeline from the Denver-Julesburg Basin to the Rockies Express Pipeline Cheyenne Hub just south of the Colorado-Wyoming border. The company has already signed long-term precedent agreements to transport 600 MMcf/d of natural gas with affiliates of Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and DCP Midstream, LP.

The Cheyenne Connector Pipeline Project is a partnership between Tallgrass Energy, Western Gas Partners, LP, and DCP Midstream that includes building an approximately 70 mile, large-diameter natural gas pipeline with an initial capacity of at least 600 MMcf/d and significant capability for expansion. Once finished, Tallgrass Energy Partners will own and operate the pipeline, with Western Gas and DCP Midstream having the option to invest in it at a later date.

The Cheyenne Connector Pipeline is expected to be operational in Q3 2019, subject to certain conditions, including required approvals from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission.
