Tallgrass Energy Cheyenne Connector Pipeline Enters Service

(P&GJ) — Tallgrass Energy announced that both the Cheyenne Connector pipeline and the Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) Cheyenne Hub Enhancement Project will commence commercial service effective June 26, 2020, having obtained approval from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on June 24, 2020.

Tallgrass and DCP Midstream each of 50% of the Cheyenne Connector which is operated by Tallgrass.

“This is a win for Colorado producers and for Tallgrass, as Cheyenne Connector provides much-needed incremental takeaway capacity from the D-J Basin. The REX Cheyenne Hub Enhancement Project provides Colorado producers connectivity to bring their natural gas into the REX pipeline at Cheyenne Hub and from there to markets across the country never before available to D-J production,” said Crystal Heter, Tallgrass Energy’s Segment President - Natural Gas Transportation.

The 70-mile, 36-inch diameter Cheyenne Connector is fully subscribed at 600 MMcf/d, with additional expansion capacity available.

The pipeline receives natural gas from processing facilities in southern Weld County, Colo., in the D-J Basin and delivers it to the REX Cheyenne Hub just south of the Wyoming border, where numerous other natural gas pipelines interconnect with REX.

The REX Cheyenne Hub was modified to allow it to receive natural gas from interconnecting pipelines and to enable bi-directional capability at several existing interconnects.

It is currently subscribed to 800 MMcf/d, 200 MMcf/d of which is anticipated to be placed in-service in the fourth quarter of 2020.

The REX Cheyenne Hub Enhancement Project has additional expansion capability beyond the 800 MMcf/d subscribed.

Natural gas connecting to the REX Cheyenne Hub can be transported to numerous demand markets across the country on REX and through downstream interconnected pipelines.
