Bighorn Completes 56-mile Gas Gathering Extension

Bighorn Gas Gathering LLC reported last week that it completed and put in-service a 56-mile, 20-inch diameter line extension on its gas gathering system in Sheridan County, WY, on Nov. 1. (see NGI, June 26).

The $17.8 million extension of Bighorn's existing 100-mile natural gas gathering system will carry gas produced by CMS Oil and Gas, Pennaco Energy and J.M. Huber Corp. Houston-based J.M. Huber has entered into a long term agreement with Bighorn covering gas production from about 100,000 acres of dedicated property. Initial production on the system will come from Huber's Prairie Dog prospect where approximately 250 coal-bed methane wells already have been drilled.

Bighorn, a limited liability company consisting of affiliates of CMS Energy and Northern Border Partners, L.P., has been in service gathering approximately 250 MMcf/d in coal-bed methane gas from the northern part of the Powder River Basin since it began operation in December of 1999. It delivers gas to the Fort Union Gas Gathering System and other U.S. markets via interstate pipeline connections to Fort Union.

Bighorn currently holds long-term contracts with producers covering gas production from about 800,000 acres of land. With the Sheridan County extension, Bighorn will be able to provide gathering services to other producers. Interested parties can call Jeff Hull with CMS Field Services at 918-560-4959.
