Meeker Pipeline

A 153 mile pipeline has been proposed for Meeker, Colorado. The
Feds are seeking comments on the pipeline, considering natural gas is not the most efficient. The pipeline will stretch from Meeker to Wyoming, as a transport for natural gas liquids. Overland Pass Pipeline Co. wants to build a fourteen inch diameter pipeline from the Wiilow Springs natural gas processing plant twenty miles southwest of Meeker, to Echo Springs Pump Station near Wamsutter, Wyoming. All but 15-20 miles of the conduit would follow existing pipeline rights-of-way, and eighty-four miles would cross federal or state land, with the rest being built on private land. The pipeline would transport about one-hundred-thousand barrels per day. Construction of the pipeline could start as early as September 2008.
