Bison Treating Facility
The Bison Treating Facility consists of three amine treaters with a combined treating capacity of 285 MMcf/d at current conditions located in the northeastern corner of Wyoming. WES operates and has a 100% working interest in the Bison Facility, which provides CO2 treating services for the coal-bed methane gas being gathered in the Powder River Basin. The asset also includes three 5,230 horsepower compressors and five generators with combined power output of 6.5 megawatts.
Bison was placed in service in 2010. The Bison Treating Facility treats and compresses gas from the coal-bed methane wells in the Powder River Basin. The Bison Pipeline, operated by TransCanada, is connected directly to the facility, which is currently the only inlet into the pipeline. The Bison Treating Facility also has access to the Ft. Union and Thunder Creek pipelines.
Anadarko provided approximately 73% of the throughput at the Bison Treating Ffacility for the year ended December 31, 2012. The remaining throughput was from one third-party producer.
