Background[edit]

Questar Pipeline Company is an interstate natural gas pipeline company that provides transportation and underground storage services in Utah, Wyoming and Colorado. Questar Pipeline owns and operates slightly more than 2,500 miles of pipeline with total daily capacity of 2,530 million decatherms (mdth). Questar Pipeline’s system is in the Rocky Mountains, near large reserves of natural gas in six major producing areas, including the Greater Green River, Uinta and Piceance basins.

Questar Pipeline transports gas from these areas to other major pipeline systems for delivery to markets in the West and Midwest including the Questar Gas local distribution system serving natural gas utility customers in Utah, southwest Wyoming and southern Idaho.

Through wholly owned subsidiaries, Questar Pipeline also owns and operates the Overthrust Pipeline in southwestern Wyoming and the eastern segment of Southern Trails Pipeline, extending 488 miles from the Blanco Hub to just inside the California state line. Questar Pipeline owns 50% of the White River Hub in western Colorado. These facilities connect with six interstate pipeline systems and a major processing plant near Meeker, Colorado.

Questar Pipeline owns and operates the Clay Basin storage facility. Located on the Wyoming-Utah border, Clay Basin is the largest underground storage reservoir in the Rocky Mountains Region.
