Business Description

Industry: Utilities - Regulated » Utilities - Regulated Gas
Compare: » details
Summit Midstream Partners LP was incorporated in the State of Delaware. It is a limited partnership focused on owning and operating midstream energy infrastructure that is strategically located in the core producing areas of unconventional resource basins, primarily shale formations, in North America. The Company currently provide fee-based natural gas gathering and compression services in two unconventional resource basins: the Piceance Basin, which includes the Mesaverde, Mancos and Niobrara Shale formations in western Colorado; and the Fort Worth Basin, which includes the Barnett Shale formation in north-central Texas. The Company's customers include some of the largest natural gas producers in North America, such as Encana Corporation, Chesapeake Energy Corporation, TOTAL, S.A., Carrizo Oil & Gas, Inc., WPX Energy, Inc., Bill Barrett Corporation, Exxon Mobil Corporation and EOG Resources, Inc. In October 2011, it acquired certain natural gas gathering pipeline, dehydration and compression assets in the Piceance Basin of western Colorado, which it refer to as the Grand River system, from Encana, for $590.2 million. The Grand River system comprises approximately 276 miles of pipeline and 97,500 horsepower of compression and is primarily located in Garfield County, Colorado, natural gas producing county in Colorado. All of the natural gas gathered on the Grand River system is discharged to Enterprise Products Partners L.P.'s pipeline serving its 1.7 Bcf/d processing facility located in Meeker, Colorado. The Grand River system mainly gathers natural gas produced by its customers from the liquids-rich Mesaverde formation within the Piceance Basin. The Mesaverde is a shallow, tight sands geologic formation that producers have targeted with directional drilling activities for several decades. The Grand River system also gathers natural gas produced from its customers' wells targeting the deeper Mancos and Niobrara Shale formations, which have higher initial production rates and lower Btu gas content than Mesaverde wells. In September 2009, it acquired approximately 17 miles of pipeline and 2,500 horsepower of electric-drive compression in north-central Texas, which it refers to as the DFW Midstream system, from Energy Future Holdings and Chesapeake. Since the initial acquisition, it has expanded the DFW Midstream system by adding approximately 92 miles of pipeline to connect 62 of 73 currently identified pad sites and installing an incremental 47,600 horsepower of compression. The DFW Midstream system currently has five primary interconnections with third-party, intrastate pipelines that enable it to connect its customers, directly or indirectly, with the major natural gas market hubs of Waha, Carthage, and Katy in Texas, and Perryville and Henry Hub in Louisiana. The Company's DFW Midstream system benefits from its location within the primarily urban environment of southeastern Tarrant County, Texas, which resides within the Fort W
