Cureton I Operations

Cureton I Operations spanned Weld, Adams, and Morgan counties in Colorado. It was sold to Williams Companies on November 30, 2023 for $560 million.

Cureton owned and operated approximately 260 miles of gas-gathering pipelines, with new projects continuously expanding its footprint.

Front Range Gas Plant

Cureton owned and operated more than 100 million standard cubic feet per day (MMSCFD) of natural gas processing capacity within Colorado’s D-J Basin. Cureton’s flagship processing facility, the Front Range Gas Plant (FRGP), commenced operations in December 2018 with more than 60 MMSCFD of cryogenic processing and stabilizer capacity of 5,000 BPD. FRGP had more than 3,000 horsepower (HP) of refrigeration compression, more than 7,500 HP of residue compression, and used an advanced cycle recycle split vapor (RSV) process to recover natural gas liquids (NGLs) to drive additional value to Cureton’s customers and independent gas producers. Cureton’s Gilcrest Gas Plant, acquired in 2022, had up to 43 MMSCFD of nominal gas processing capacity. Cureton’s processing facilities provided connections to major downstream delivery outlets for residue gas, including Colorado Interstate Gas and Public Service Co. of Colorado, and NGLs, including Conway and Mt. Belvieu.


Cureton operated more than 36,000 HP of compression at multiple facilities with TEG Dehydration providing more than 150 MMSCFD of throughput capacity. The stations served to compress unprocessed natural gas gathered at low pressures for delivery to Cureton’s Gas Processing Plants.
