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.
