Meritage Doubling Powder River Processing as Pipeline Nears Completion

Meritage Midstream will more than double the natural gas processing capacity on its supersystem in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin with the construction of a new, cryogenic processing plant located in Converse County, Wyo.

The plant will be served by a 20-inch trunk line that is nearing completion and will connect to Thunder Creek’s gathering system.

With a capacity of 200 MMcf/d, the plant is expected to come into service early in the third quarter of 2019, bringing Meritage Midstream’s total processing capacity in the basin to 380 MMcf/d. The complex is large enough to handle two additional 200 MMcf/d cryogenic processing plants, the company said.

The Steamboat I plant will also be connected to the Wyoming Interstate pipeline system for residue gas. NGLs currently flow to Phillips 66 and Oneok.

Strategically located in the southern portion of the basin, the Steamboat I plant complements Denver-based Meritage’s 50 Buttes Processing Plant, located in Campbell County near Gillette, Wyo., 100 miles north of the Steamboat complex. P&GJ
