Kansas-based Tallgrass Energy has announced that both its Cheyenne Connector pipeline and Rockies Express Pipeline (REX) Cheyenne Hub Enhancement Project have now begun commercial service. Tallgrass and DCP Midstream each hold a 50% interest in the 70-mile Cheyenne Connector, which flows natural gas supplies from processing facilities in the DJ Basin in southern Weld County, Colo., to the REX Cheyenne Hub south of the Wyo., border. There, the REX Pipeline connects and intersects with numerous other pipelines—including several that Tallgrass has modified for bi-directional flow—and provides DJ gas first firm access to West, Midwest, Southeast and Gulf Coast markets. DCP is one of the largest oil and gas operators in the DJ.
Tallgrass Energy, LP is a growth-oriented midstream energy company, transporting crude oil and natural gas from some of the nation’s most prolific basins in the Rocky Mountains, Upper Midwest and Appalachian regions with access to major demand markets in the Rockies, the Midwest, eastern Ohio and points beyond.
The Cheyenne Connector is fully subscribed at 600 MMCFD. The REX Hub offers 800 MMCFD of capacity with 200 MMCFD expected to be placed into service during 4Q this year. The REX Pipeline, co-owned by Tallgrass and Phillips 66, is among the largest natural gas pipelines in the nation, extending 1,700 miles from northwestern Colo., and Wyo., to eastern Ohio.
Tallgrass Energy owns and operates more than 8,300 miles of natural gas pipelines, 850+ miles of crude pipe, and 300+ miles of water pipeline across the Rockies, Upper Midwest, and Appalachia. Additional projects include the proposed 700-mile Seahorse Pipeline that will transport 800,000 BPD of crude from the Cushing, Okla., hub to the La., Gulf Coast. The 80-mile Iron Horse Pipeline will move crude from the Powder River Basin to the Guernsey, Wyo., oil hub.
