Fort Union System
Owned and operated by Western Gas Partners, LP, the Fort Union system is a 324-mile gathering system operating within the Powder River Basin of Wyoming, starting in west central Campbell County and terminating at the Medicine Bow treating plant. The system consists of three parallel pipelines and includes CO2 treating facilities at the Medicine Bow plant. Fort Union's gas treating capacity will vary depending upon the CO2 content of the inlet gas. At current CO2 levels, the system is capable of treating and blending over 1 Bcf/d while satisfying the CO2 specifications of downstream pipelines. Fort Union's throughput volumes decreased during 2011 due to the commencement of operations of TransCanada's Bison pipeline in January 2011.
Fort Union Gas Gathering, LLC is a partnership among Copano Pipelines/Rocky Mountains, LLC (37.04%), Crestone Powder River LLC (37.04%), Bargath, Inc. (11.11%) and Western Gas Partners LP (14.81%). Anadarko is the field and construction operator of the Fort Union gathering system.
