The Cheyenne Plains Gas Pipeline is owned and operated by El Paso Pipeline Partners.[3] The pipeline runs from near the Wyoming-Colorado border to south central Kansas, and serves market areas in the Midwest with connections to several mid-continent pipelines in south-central Kansas.[7][6] The project was submitted for approval by U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) in 2003. On 20 February 2004, FERC approved the project after recommending modifications and mitigation measures to minimise adverse environmental impact.[5] The pipeline began service in January 2005.[3]

The project involved development of 379.8 miles of 36- inch diameter mainline, with 189 miles in Colorado and 190.8 miles in Kansas.
