DJ South launches supplemental open season

DJ South Gathering has launched a supplemental biding open season to obtain commitments for a pipeline that will ship crude from origin points in Colorado’s Adams and Weld counties to destination points in Weld County, Colo.

DJ South Gathering LLC has launched a supplemental biding open season Sept. 10 to obtain shipper commitments for a pipeline system in the DJ basin that will transport crude from origin points in Colorado’s Adams and Weld counties to destination points at the Platteville and Lucerne Stations in Weld County, Colo., for further transportation on third-party pipelines to Cushing, Okla., and other downstream destinations.

The system is expected to provide interstate transportation service subject to the jurisdiction of the US Federal Energy Regulatory Commission. Primary direct connections are available at Platteville to Saddlehorn, Pony Express, and White Cliffs.

DJ South intends to construct new origin locations in Adams and Weld counties together with lateral pipelines from such origin locations to Platteville, Colo.

The proposed new origins would be central receipt points in Adams County (Bennett/Matador CRP) and Weld County (Badger CRP). DJ South would construct a 38-mile pipeline (Matador Pipeline) from the Bennett-Matador CRP to the Platteville Station and a 32-mile pipeline (Badger Pipeline) from the Badger CRP to the Platteville Station. DJ South also would construct a 22-mile pipeline from the Platteville Station to the Lucerne Station. The DJ South Pipeline System will have an initial design capacity of 220,000 b/d and is expected to be in service on or about January 2020.

DJ South is seeking committed shippers willing to make long-term acreage dedications either with or without minimum volume commitments for transportation service in exchange for access to priority capacity.

The open season runs until Oct. 1.
