Tallgrass Energy Announces Open Season for Further Pony Express Pipeline Expansion

LEAWOOD, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tallgrass Energy, LP (NYSE: TGE), through its affiliate Tallgrass Pony
Express Pipeline, LLC (“Pony Express”), today announced a new project to
support crude oil production in northern Weld County, Colorado, near the
border between Wyoming and Colorado. The Hereford Project will include
approximately 30 miles of new 12-inch pipeline, as well as expanded
capacity on the Pony Express system.

Sufficient interest arose during Pony Express’ existing open season for
expansion capacity from origin points in Colorado and Wyoming to
destinations along the system to justify the Hereford Project as a
stand-alone project.

The new 30-mile pipeline, the Hereford Lateral, will connect crude oil
gathering facilities and/or terminal facilities near Hereford, Colorado,
with existing Pony Express facilities located near the Pawnee origin
facility in Weld County. Pony Express expects the Hereford Lateral to be
in-service by July 2019, and the expansion capacity on the existing Pony
Express system to be in-service by May 2020 – both ahead of the larger
Pony Express system expansion announced Jan. 22, 2019.

Pony Express is launching a limited open season to allow interested
parties the opportunity to commit to the Hereford Project. The Hereford
Open Season will run from May 1, 2019, to May 15, 2019. The deadline for
bids is May 15, 2019.

Interested parties may review details of the open season after executing
a confidentiality agreement obtained by contacting Kyle Quackenbush,
303.763.3319, Andrew DiPaolo, 303.763.3329, or Dean Dick, 307.232.4430.
