CHEYENNE Gov. Dave Freudenthal hosted representatives from the Rockies Express (REX) Pipeline to mark full service of the 1,679 mile pipeline, which runs from northwestern Colorado to eastern Ohio.

REX President Doug Walker said the pipeline was helping to increase the price of Wyoming natural gas because there is now enough capacity to bring the gas to new markets. The pipeline is, in turn, helping those markets by reducing prices when the additional supply is introduced.

Kinder Morgan Director of Community Relations Allen Fore said the pipeline is helping to heat four million homes. REX is a joint venture of Kinder Morgan, which owns half the undertaking, and Sempra Pipelines and Conoco Philips, both of which own a quarter of the venture.

The pipeline mainly feeds into other downstream systems, which help bring Wyoming gas to homes and businesses in the Midwest, Chicago and Ohio markets, Walker said. It became fully operational, with gas delivery available to all contractual customer, Thursday, Nov. 12.
