CIG, Xcel Developing Gas Storage for Proposed High Plains Project

WYCO Development LLC, jointly owned by El Paso Corp.'s Colorado Interstate Gas (CIG) and Xcel Energy, said Wednesday it plans to develop and lease some new natural gas transportation and storage facilities in Colorado. The new facilities would support the proposed High Plains Pipeline Project, which launched open seasons in mid-January (see Daily GPI, Jan. 16).

CIG, which will lease and operate the facilities, expects to file applications with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission this spring and next fall.

The proposed project includes 164 miles of natural gas transmission pipeline and natural gas storage facilities with 7 Bcf of working gas capacity. The High Plains Pipeline facilities would extend from the Cheyenne Hub area in Weld County, CO, to interconnections with the distribution facilities of Public Service Co. of Colorado; to the facilities of Young Gas Storage in Morgan County, CO; and to a proposed storage facility in Adams County, CO.

CIG's open season for the project runs through Feb. 12, and a binding open season runs through Feb. 16. For information about precedent agreements or offer sheets, contact CIG's Greg Ruben at (719) 520-4870.
