To take advantage of the burgeoning natural gas volumes flowing from Colorado, El Paso Pipeline Partners LP plans to expand its Wyoming Interstate Co. (WIC) Piceance Basin lateral pipe, and additional capacity may be available by late next year.
Falcon Gas Storage Co. Inc. subsidiary NorTex Gas Storage Co. LLC started flowing gas through its newly constructed Worsham-Steed Pipeline, the company said. The system is a 60-mile, 24-inch high-pressure pipeline in the western portion of the Barnett Shale play in North Texas. Initial flow rates have ranged 150,000-200,000 Mcf/d and are expected to increase as gas injection activity accelerates at the Falcon’s Worsham-Steed Gas Storage facility. Traversing Jack, Parker and Hood counties, the pipeline has a capacity of 450,000 Mcf/d, which can be expanded to 650,000 Mcf/d. The pipe connects with three export pipelines serving the North Texas market area — Energy Transfer’s Old Ocean pipeline, Enterprise Product’s and Energy Transfer’s North Texas Pipeline, and Atmos Energy’s Line X pipeline. These pipelines serve markets from the Waha Hub in West Texas to the Carthage Hub in Northeast Texas, as well as the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex and surrounding areas in North Texas, including the Barnett Shale. Ultimately, Falcon plans to connect the Worsham-Steed Pipeline with a total of 10 pipelines in the North Texas/Barnett Shale market area.

Consumer ire and political juices are flowing in Montana and Colorado, two northern Rockies states in which out-of-state interests own the major private-sector utilities, and all is not well in land of big skies and snow-capped peaks. Public power plays are being pursued in Montana as South Dakota-based NorthWestern assures that it will be out of Chapter 11 bankruptcy in a year’s time, and Colorado consumers want Minnesota-based Xcel Energy, its utility holding company, to have a third-party audit of its operations in the state.
