Pursuant to the Wyoming Administrative Procedure Act and the Wyoming Public Service Commission’s (Commission) Rules, notice is hereby given of the Application of Black Hills Wyoming Gas, LLC d/b/a Black Hills Energy (BHWG or the Company), for authority to revise its established distribution areas and Wobbe Indices, as more fully described below.

1. BHWG is a public utility subject to the Commission’s jurisdiction. Wyo. Stat. §§ 37-1-101(a)(vi)(D) and 37-2-112.

2. On March 26, 2024, BHWG submitted its Application requesting authority to revise its established distribution areas and Wobbe Indices. Specifically, the Company proposes updating the Wobbe Indices for the Riverton-Kinnear Area, Lander-Hudson Area, Arapahoe Area, Ethete-Fort Washakie Area, Pavillion Area, and Shoshoni Area. The Company states that many of the Wobbe Indices in effect were established in the 1980s, and are outdated due to changes in the natural gas supply, and that several of the locations used to test the supply are redundant. BHWG states that its proposed measurement points and methods will better represent a more constant and accurate measurement of gas quality delivered to customers than previously available.

3. This is not a complete description of the Application. The complete Application is available at the Commission’s offices or online at: (Enter Record No. 17533).
