A binding open season to secure volume dedications for the proposed construction and development on its existing Thunder Creek NGL Pipeline system was announced by Meritage Midstream. The binding open season started at 8:00 AM MT on June 10, 2019 and is scheduled to conclude at 5:00 PM MT on July 10, 2019.
The pipeline will transport NGLs from two processing plants in Campbell and Converse counties, Wyoming, to an interconnection point with ONEOK's Bakken Pipeline in Converse County.
Meritage said the open season seeks to obtain volume dedications from shippers to the following proposed new movements:
1. Originating from Thunder Creek Gas Services' 50 Buttes Process Plant in Campbell County with a destination at an interconnection with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline in Converse County, and
2. Originating from Thunder Creek's Steamboat I Natural Gas Plant in Converse County, 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 Thunder Creek plants in the Powder River Basin to a newly established interconnect with ONEOK Bakken Pipeline at Well Draw in Converse County.
It will then provide access to ONEOK’s Niobrara Lateral, which will ultimately access newly created capacity on ONEOK’s Elk Creek expansion. The new movements is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2019, subject to shipper demand.
