Texas and Okla., are back in the headlines this morning but it’s not the frigid weather lifting eyebrows this time. Reese Energy Consulting is following breaking news from Dallas-based pipeline behemoth Energy Transfer, which has announced it will acquire Okla. City-based Enable Midstream in an all-equity deal valued at 7.2 billion. The merger includes 14,000 miles of natural gas, crude, condensate and produced water gathering pipe; 15 major processing plants; 10,000 miles of intrastate and interstate natural gas pipelines; and 7 gas storage facilities across Okla., Texas, La., Mo., and into Ill. The combined company strengthens Energy Transfer’s already sizeable NGLs system with added gathering and processing assets in Okla.’s Anadarko Basin and connectivity to its Gulf Coast fractionation complex. Other perks include Enable’s gas gathering and processing assets in the Arkoma Basin across Okla., and Ark., and the Haynesville in La., and Texas. We now return you to your regular weather programming.
Energy Transfer is one of the largest and most diversified midstream energy companies in the country with approximately 90,000 miles of pipelines traversing 38 states transporting the oil and gas products that make our lives possible.
