Southern Star Description

Our Southern Star index encompasses transactions within the Midcontinent portion of the pipeline's Production Area. We include all portions of the pipeline that lie in Oklahoma, the small piece that extends into Hemphill County, TX, the section that runs from the Kansas-Hugoton Field in SW Kansas to the Hesston Compressor Station in Harvey County, KS, and the North-South lateral that connects the Hesston Station to the Blackwell Station in Kay County, OK. We do not include transactions along the portion of the pipeline that originates in the Wamsutter area in Wyoming and connects with the Hesston Station, since that gas is more indicative of Rocky Mountains production. We also exclude the entire Market Area of the Southern Star system.
