Hugoton Gathering System / Hugoton Residue Delivery System
The Hugoton Gathering System ("HGS")
Owned and operated by Western Gas Partners, LP, the 1,953-mile Hugoton gathering system provides gathering service to the Hugoton field and is primarily located in Seward, Stevens, Grant and Morton Counties of Southwest Kansas and Texas County in Oklahoma. Three levels of gathering service is being provided, vacuum, 100 – 200 psi, and 250+ psi.
The Hugoton gathering system is connected to the Satanta plant, 51% owned by Pioneer Natural Resources Corporation (Operator) and 49% Anadarko, which extracts NGLs, LNG, helium, and delivers residue gas into Kansas Gas Services and Southern Star pipeline. The system is also connected to DCP Midstream's National Helium plant, which extracts NGLs and helium and delivers residue gas into the Panhandle Eastern pipeline.
Anadarko is the largest customer on the Hugoton gathering system with approximately 85% of the system throughput during the year ended December 31, 2012.
The Hugoton Residue Delivery System ("HRDS")
Owned and operated by Anadarko, the Hugoton Residue Delivery System (“HRDS”) was established in October 1999 by isolating several segments of existing pipelines in wet gas gathering service of the Cimarron River System and the former Panhandle Eastern gathering system. These segments were coupled together with 3 miles of new 10” pipe that was installed along the Morton and Stevens County line. This allowed for the delivery of dry residue gas from the Mid-Continent Market Center (now Santana Processing Plant) and the redelivering of residue gas for regional sales, compression fuel and irrigations sales of 10 – 15 MMcf/d based on heating load and fuel requirements. Anadarko Natural Gas Company owns all gas through the system and owns the HRDS pipeline.
