Williams Partners, Crestwood Equity reach Powder River pact with Chesapeake

Williams Partners LP (WPZ) and Crestwood Equity Partners (CEQP), as 50/50 joint venture partners in the Bucking Horse natural gas processing plant and Jackalope Gas Gathering System, announced they have signed an agreement with Chesapeake Energy Corporation (CHK) to restructure natural gas gathering and processing services in Wyoming's Powder River Basin. The restructured services are expected to replace the current cost-of-service arrangement and improve economics to support a ramp-up in near-term development and production activity and incentivize long-term development across an expanded area of dedication in the region. The restructured terms of service are expected to include minimum annual revenue guarantees that support the transition to a new fixed-fee structure over the next five to seven years. Subject to board approvals of the definitive agreement, the restructured services are to become effective Jan. 1, 2017 for a 20-year term.
