Red Desert Complex


Owned and operated by Western Gas Partners, LP, the Red Desert Complex is located in Sweetwater and Carbon Counties of Wyoming. The complex gathers, compresses, treats, processes and fractionates natural gas and NGLs produced in the eastern portion of the Greater Green River Basin, providing service primarily to the Red Desert and Washakie Basins. The Red Desert Complex is strategically linked to Anadarko’s land grant acreage across the southern Wyoming corridor.

The Red Desert system consists of two cryogenic gas processing plants with a current operating capacity of 130 MMcf/d expandable to 200 MMcf/d. Residue gas is delivered to Colorado Interstate Gas (CIG) and Wyoming Interstate Company (WIC) interstate pipelines. NGLs are delivered to the Mid-America Pipeline (MAPL) system, and on-site truck and rail loading facilities. Natural gas is gathered in the field and compressed on site at approximately eight field compressor stations.
