HOUSTON, Dec. 17 -- Questar Pipeline Co. and Enterprise Products Operating LLC have begun service on the White River hub in Rio Blanco county, Colo., connecting Enterprise's natural gas processing plant at Meeker with four interstate natural gas pipelines: Rockies Express Pipeline LLC, Questar, Northwest Pipeline GP (including Williams' Willow Creek processing plant, currently under construction), and TransColorado Gas Transmission Co.

Wyoming Interstate Co. and Colorado Interstate Gas will connect during first-quarter 2009. A connection to Northwest's Colorado Hub Connection pipeline will enter service fourth-quarter 2009.

White River hub includes 4 miles of existing 36-in. OD pipe and about 7 miles of new 30-in. OD pipe, plus tie-in and metering, and can move more than 2.5 bcfd of natural gas from Colorado's Piceance basin.

The US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission approved draft environmental impact statements on the Rockies Express, TransColorado, and Quester pipelines connected to White River in November 2006 (OGJ, Nov. 20, 2006, p. 32).
