Developed by affiliates of Enterprise Products Partners L.P., Anadarko Petroleum Corporation and DCP Midstream, LLC, the Front Range Pipeline is designed to provide takeaway capacity for growing production of natural gas liquids (NGL) in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin of northeast Colorado. As planned, the pipeline will originate in Weld County, Colorado and extend approximately 420 miles to Skellytown, Texas. With connections to the Enterprise-operated Mid-America Pipeline and Texas Express Pipeline systems, Front Range will provide producers in the DJ Basin with reliable takeaway capacity and market access to the Gulf Coast, the largest NGL market in the United States.
As designed, the pipeline has a capacity of 150,000 barrels per day ("BPD"), which could be readily expanded to approximately 230,000 BPD. The Front Range Pipeline could begin service in the fourth quarter of 2013.
