Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Procedural Rules and Special Regulations, notice is hereby given of the Application of Questar Gas Company d/b/a Dominion Energy Wyoming (Dominion of the Company) for approval of the Horseshoe Bend Development as a Wexpro II property, as more fully described below.

1. Dominion is a division of Dominion Energy, Inc., a Virginia corporation, engaged in the business of supplying energy services in 16 states, including natural gas services in Utah, Wyoming, and Idaho. Dominion is a public utility subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-1-101(a)(vi)(D) and 37-2-112.

2. On February 1, 2024, Dominion filed its Application requesting an order approving the inclusion of the recently acquired properties located within the Horseshoe Bend Farmout field (the Horseshoe Bend Development or Development) as Wexpro II properties pursuant to the Wexpro II Agreement. The Commission approved the Wexpro II Agreement in Docket No. 30010-123-GA- l 2. The Horseshoe Bend Development is outside the existing Wexpro I Development Drilling Area. The Company seeks authority to include the relevant portions of the Horseshoe Bend Development within the Wexpro II Agreement and voluntarily offers the remaining portions for inclusion as a Wexpro II property.

3. Dominion purchased the Horseshoe Bend Development at its own risk and is selling production from these wells on the open market pending the outcome of a decision by the Commission deciding whether this acquisition should be included as a Wexpro II property under the agreement. If the properties are approved as Wexpro II properties, then the acquisition costs will be adjusted for the value of gas sold from the time Wexpro closed on the property until the Commission’s approval of inclusion of the property. The Company contends that approval of the Horseshoe Bend Development as a Wexpro II property will provide an opportunity for customers to receive low cost gas for many years. Additionally, the Company states that Wexpro will continue to manage its current production and future drilling programs at or below the 5-Year Forward Curve and to manage combined cost-of-service production from Wexpro I and Wexpro II properties to Dominion at or below the thresholds established in the Canyon Creek Acquisition in Commission Docket No. 30010-145-GA-15.

4. This is not a complete description of the Application. Any interested person may inspect the Application at the Commission’s offices in Cheyenne, Wyoming or at the Company’s business office in Rock Springs, Wyoming, during regular business hours or at https://dms.wyo.gov/external/publicusers.aspx (enter Record No. 17496).

5. Anyone desiring to file a statement, intervention petition, protest or request for a hearing, in this matter must file with the Commission in writing on or before March 6, 2024. A proposed intervention or request for hearing must set forth the grounds, the position and interest of the petitioner. Please mention Docket No. 30010-222-GA-24 in your communications.

6. If you wish to participate in this matter, and you require reasonable accommodation for a disability, please contact the Commission at (307) 777-7427 or at 2515 Warren Avenue, Suite 300, Cheyenne, Wyoming 82002.
