Fort Union Gathering Moves Ahead

CMS Gas Transmission and Storage Co. said the Fort Union Gas Gathering partnership has secured all of the rights-of-way necessary to construct its planned 106-mile natural gas gathering system in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming. CMS is the managing member in the partnership, which also includes Enron Capital & Trade Resources Corp., Western Gas Resources and CIG Resources Co.

The $46 million project remains on schedule for a September 1999 startup, CMS said. Fort Union will gather coal-bed methane from as far north as 30 miles north of Gillette, WY, south to Glenrock, WY. It will also receive gas from CMS Gas Transmission and Storage's planned northern gathering system to be located in the northern portion of Campbell County and Sheridan County. In addition to CIG's Powder River lateral and K N Interstate's system, Fort Union will also interconnect with Wyoming Interstate Company's (WIC) proposed Medicine Bow lateral at Glenrock for redelivery to the Cheyenne/Rockport Hub. Pending FERC approval, Medicine Bow is expected to be in service by January 2000.
