Due to ongoing shipper interest, SemGroup Corporation (together with its affiliates, “SemGroup”) and DCP Midstream, L.P. (together with its affiliates, “DCP”) (jointly referred to as “Carriers”) are pleased to announce the commencement of an extension to the open season process to solicit binding commitments for natural gas liquids (NGL) transportation service from the DJ Basin to Mont Belvieu, Texas.
Transportation capacity will be available via a portion of White Cliffs Pipeline and Southern Hills Pipeline, connecting Weld County, Colorado to Mont Belvieu, Texas. A portion of White Cliffs Pipeline is currently being converted to NGL service. The project, which is expected to be in service in the first quarter of 2020, will provide DJ Basin customers with increased NGL take-away capacity and open access to Texas Gulf Coast markets. SemGroup owns 51 percent of White Cliffs Pipeline and is the operator. DCP owns 100 percent of Wattenberg Pipeline and 66 percent of Southern Hills Pipeline, and is the operator of both pipelines.
Shippers will move product under a published joint tariff between the two carriers. The open season is being held to provide prospective shippers an opportunity to receive discount transportation rates in exchange for long-term volume commitments. Open season will begin at 5 a.m. Central on July 5, 2019 and will conclude at 5 p.m. Central on August 5, 2019.
