Questar Gas Company Receives Approval to Add Natural Gas Properties Under Wexpro II Agreement

Questar Gas has received approval from the Utah and Wyoming public service commissions to include natural gas producing properties under the Wexpro II Agreement. Under the terms of Wexpro II, approval was needed from both states. These approvals extend the benefits of Wexpro production. Under the terms of the original Wexpro Agreement, Questar affiliate Wexpro Company produces gas from certain properties at cost of service for the benefit of Questar's Utah and Wyoming utility customers. The Wexpro II Agreement perpetuates that model by enabling the company to add new properties for cost-of-service development. Wexpro II, approved in 2013, stipulates that all Wexpro acquisitions within the footprint of the 1981 agreement must be offered to the public service commissions of Utah and Wyoming for inclusion as cost-of-service properties benefitting Questar's utility customers. In September, Wexpro acquired additional working interest in existing Wexpro-operated wells in the Trail Unit of southwestern Wyoming's Vermillion Basin for about $104 million. Wexpro already owned 46% working interest in the properties; the acquisition increased that interest to 88 percent. It also added an estimated 118 billion cubic feet equivalent (Bcfe) of net proved reserves with additional upside potential.
