Tallgrass Energy, a growth-oriented mid-stream, transportation, storage, terminal, water collection, and processing company operating in 11 states, operates assets serving some of the nation's most prolific crude and natural gas ponds. Since its founding in 2012, a strong portfolio has been created to support its clients, increase value and deliver speed-defining shareholder returns. Cheyenne Connector, REX Cheyenne Hub Enhancement, Iron Horse, and Seahorse Pipelines are some of Tallgrass’s leading projects.

Kinder Morgan, Inc. is one of North America’s largest energy infrastructure firms. The firm has or operates about 84,000 miles of pipelines and 157 terminals. Transport and store of liquids including petroleum goods, ethanol and chemicals, and bulk products, including petroleum coke, metals, and ores, is part of our pipelines, natural gas, refined oil products, crude oil, condensates, and CO2.

In the U.S., there is a huge need for more energy infrastructure because of the revolutionary shale play. Every year, Kinder Morgan invests billions of dollars to grow the company by constructing new and existing assets to help secure the delivery of a range of energy products on the market.

Tallgrass Energy, LP, and Kinder Morgan, Inc. recently announced a joint agreement to develop an approach that would increase the existing petroleum capacity in the growing Powder River and Denver-Julesburg basins and enable the Williston Basin and parts of Western Canada to be added to capacity. Under the agreement, both existing and newly constructed assets would be included in the proposed undertaking. TGE would contribute to its Pony Express Pipeline system and KMI would provide part of the Gas Pipeline for Wyoming Intrastate and Cheyenne Plains, and begin to abandon and convert the crude oil service process. Furthermore, about 200 miles of new pipeline will be built to supply crude oil to Cushing, Okla.

A total of up to 800,000 barrels of light crude oil per day and 150,000 bpd of crude oil from the Wyoming/Colorado to TGE’s and KMI’s Deeprock terminal in Cushing are expected to be delivered via this combined pipeline system. Through TGE's Seahorse Pipeline and other existing or proposed future pipeline projects, customers have pipeline connectivity to the Gulf Coast and exportation markets. The combined project is expected to be inaugurated in the second half of 2020.
