Producers have been dialing back on production and becoming more financially prudent over the last few years as a result of a downturn in prices. This changing environment has largely been seen as a negative by midstream operators, who have to alter their focus and push back projects. However, there’s a positive to these alterations according to Barry Davis, chair and CEO of EnLink Midstream Partners.

“Lower production means less infrastructure needed, and less infrastructure needed means more competition and more capabilities required to win,” he said during the company’s recent conference call to discuss second-quarter 2019 earnings.

“Midstream companies that will win in today’s environment are those that have deep customer relationships and are able to deliver the best solutions that are integrated across the value chain, are proactive and opportunistic in identifying new growth opportunities, and have the financial resources to move quickly and capitalize on opportunities,” Davis continued.
