Western Gas Partners begins non-binding open season for DBE pipeline

Western Gas Partners LP’s (NYSE: WES) wholly owned subsidiary, Delaware Basin Express LLC (DBE), is holding a non-binding open season to identify interest in a new pipeline project serving portions of Reeves, Loving and Ward counties, Texas. 

The pipeline will provide transportation service from the tailgate of the Ramsey Gas Processing Plant, located in northern Reeves County to the downstream intrastate pipelines located in the Waha area near Coyanosa, Texas. Additional receipt connections may potentially be added at the tailgates of the MiVida and Bone Spring gas processing plants. The initial capacity of the pipeline will be approximately 600,000 Dth/d of residue gas to the Waha Hub area, and could be increased up to 1,600,000 Dth/d with the addition of compression.

Subject to the satisfaction of regulatory requirements and other customary project considerations, DBE expects that the pipeline will be in service by the fourth quarter of 2016.  

The non-binding open season began Sept. 1 and ends at 4 p.m. Central Time on Sept. 30.
