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.
The Hugoton gathering system is connected to the Satanta plant, owned by Pioneer Natural Resources Corporation and Anadarko, which extracts NGLs and 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 76% of the system throughput during the year ended December 31, 2011. Approximately 19% of the throughput on the Hugoton system for the year ended December 31, 2011 was from one third-party shipper with the balance from various other third-party shippers.
The Hugoton Residue Delivery System ("HRDS")
Owned and operated by Anadarko, the Hugoton Residue Delivery System ("HRDS") is a utility registered in the state of Kansas. HRDS was established in October 1999 by isolating a pipeline system capable of accepting delivery of residue gas from Mid-Continent Market Center and redelivering the residue gas for regional sales, compression fuel and irrigation sales. The residue gas offsets wet gas previously used for these deliveries and allows the wet gas to be processed for NGLs and helium. HRDS includes approximately 50 miles of pipeline with deliveries of 10 - 15 MMcf/d based on heating load and fuel requirements.
