Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners, Anadarko Petroleum of The Woodlands and DCP Midstream of Denver will each hold a one-third interest in the Front Range Pipeline.

The line is expected to run 435 miles from the Denver-Julesberg basin in Weld County, Colorado to Skellytown, Texas near Amarillo.

Initial capacity on Front Range is expected to be approximately 150,000 barrels per day, which can be expanded to about 230,000 barrels per day.

Enterprise will build and operate the pipeline, which is expected to begin service in the fourth quarter of 2013.
