Meritage Midstream’s subsidiary, Thunder Creek NGL Pipeline (Thunder Creek), has launched a binding open season to secure volume dedications to support the proposed construction and development on its existing natural gas liquids pipeline.
The construction is aimed at facilitating transportation of natural gas liquids from two processing plants located in Campbell and Converse counties in Wyoming to an interconnection point with ONEOK Hydrocarbon’s ONEOK Bakken Pipeline in Converse County, Wyoming.
The binding open season commenced, June 10 and is scheduled to conclude at 5:00 p.m. Mountain Time on July 10, 2019.
The open season seeks to obtain volume dedications from shippers to the following proposed new movements:
- Originating from Thunder Creek Gas Services, L.L.C.’s (TCGS) 50 Buttes Process Plant in Campbell County, Wyoming with a destination at an interconnection with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline in Converse County, Wyoming; and
- Originating from TCGS’s Steamboat I Natural Gas Plant located in Converse County, Wyoming with a destination at an interconnection with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline in Converse County, Wyoming.
The proposed new origin and destination points will allow potential shippers to move product from TCGS plants in the Powder River Basin (“PRB”) to a newly established interconnect with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline at Well Draw in Converse County, Wyoming, providing potential shippers the ability to access ONEOK’s Niobrara Lateral, which will ultimately access newly created capacity on ONEOK’s Elk Creek expansion.
Subject to shipper demand, required new infrastructure to enable the proposed new movements is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019.
The binding open season process provides potential shippers with the opportunity to obtain firm capacity on the proposed new movements by making deemed volume commitments to Thunder Creek during the binding open season.
Shippers that elect to execute transportation services contracts and make commitments to Thunder Creek during the binding open season will receive firm capacity rights up to an amount equal to each shipper’s elected deemed volume commitment.
