Superior Pipeline Co. (Superior) has completed the acquisition of roughly 600 miles (965 km) of gathering pipeline and compression in central Oklahoma, USA. The acquired assets will complement existing Superior infrastructure, and the gas volumes associated with the acquisition will be processed by Superior’s existing processing facilities.
According to Superior, these assets will allow for greater operational flexibility and efficiency between Superior’s gathering and gas processing facilities in the area. The volume on this gathering system and its associated third-party contracts will expand the Superior customer base, allowing Superior to serve a wider group of producers.
“This acquisition is the first step in the Superior plan to grow its midstream business through the acquisition and consolidation of synergistic midstream assets,” said Mike Hicks, chief operating officer at Superior.
Headquartered in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Superior is a full-service midstream energy company targeting gas gathering, processing, treating, compression, dehydration, transportation, and marketing of natural gas and natural gas liquids. The company owns and operates more than 1500 miles (2414 km) of pipeline consisting of more than 140,000 hp (104,440 kW) of compression; operates seven natural gas processing facilities with a combined capacity of 323 MMcfd (9.1 x 106 m3/d); and three natural gas treating plants. Superior has throughput volumes of over 465 MMcfd (13.1 x 106 m3/d) and over 700,000 gallons of liquids per day.
Natural gas gathering and compression services include the design, construction, ownership and operation of natural gas gathering and compression facilities for both low- and high-pressure natural gas gathering pipelines from the wellhead to a point of interconnect with a mainline transmission company.
Superior operates business in five US geographic areas: the Texas/Oklahoma panhandle; Central/Western Oklahoma; Southeastern Oklahoma; Southeast Texas; and Appalachia, which includes Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
