Greater Wattenberg Area


Anadarko’s Wattenberg System is the premier gas gathering and processing system in Colorado’s Denver-Julesburg Basin. This fully-integrated system including facilities acquired from EnCana (Third Creek, Ione, Aristocrat and Lateral Gathering Systems / Platte Valley Plant), Kerr-McGee (Wattenberg Gathering System/Ft Lupton Plant) and BP (Wattenberg Plant) and provides nearly 300 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) of cryogenic processing capacity through more than 2,900 miles of gathering pipelines. Anadarko’s Wattenberg System continues to grow its cryogenic processing capacity with the addition of Lancaster Train I, scheduled to be on line in the first quarter of 2014 and Train II a year later. Each Train will be capable of processing 300 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d).
