Williams to build Colorado, Kansas, Oklahoma gas pipeline

By the OGJ Online Staff

HOUSTON, Oct. 25 -- Western Frontier Pipeline LLC, a unit of Williams Cos. Inc., Tulsa, has applied to the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission to build a natural gas pipeline from Colorado to Oklahoma.

The proposed 400-mile, 30-in. Western Frontier line would transport up to 540,000 dekatherms/day from the Cheyenne Hub in northeastern Colorado to Williams' Central pipeline system and various other pipeline interconnects in southwest Kansas and the panhandle of Oklahoma. Storage would be available through Central (OGJ Online, June 19, 2001).

Williams said the $365 million line will provide transportation to increasingly productive natural gas supply basins in the central Rockies region and existing basins in the Front Range area. Williams proposes the line will have access to other Mid-Continent lines, including ANR Pipeline, Panhandle Eastern Pipeline, Northern Natural Gas, and Natural Gas Pipeline of America.

Williams hopes to bring the pipeline in service by Nov. 1, 2003.
