Two new gas plants have been launched in the Powder River Basin, according to Oil Patch Hotline. The projects are in North Dakota and Wyoming.

Meritage Midstream started up its 200,000 Mcf a day gas processing plant in Converse County, doubling its processing capacity in the Powder River Basin.

The new Steamboat 1 plant is part of Meritage’s Thunder Creek system connected to 119 wells with total processing capacity of 380,000 Mcf a day along with 1,600 miles of line and 120 miles of NGL pipeline.

Crestwood Equity Partners LP said its new Bucking Horse II gas processing plant started up this month with a capacity of 200,000 Mcf a day in Converse County, bringing total capacity in the Powder River Basin to 345,000 Mcf a day.

ONEOK just wrapped up completion of the $1.2 billion Elk Creek natural gas liquids pipeline that runs 900 miles from Sidney, MT to Buston, KS.

Just last month, it had announced a $305 million expansion of the Elk 400,000 BPD pipeline with incremental capacity becoming available in early 2021.
