Eco-Energy, a leading biofuel and natural gas marketing supply chain company, has acquired the Stone Mountain gathering pipeline system, Stone Mountain processing facility and the Stone Mountain rail terminal.
The assets had been owned by Continuum Energy Services for over 10 years. Financial terms were not disclosed.
The Stone Mountain gathering system is made of up over 600 miles of gathering pipelines that span Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia. The system has a design capacity for 60,000 Mcf/d and collects gas from over 800 wells which supply the cryogenic processing facility before interconnecting with the East Tennessee pipeline. The East Tennessee interconnect provides a significant uplift in value to the surrounding production.
The Stone Mountain cryogenic processing plant has capacity of 25,000 Mcf/d with a pipeline connection to the Stone Mountain liquids terminal. The liquids terminal is designed to handle y-grade, propane and butane and has 24 railcar spots with access to the Norfolk Southern railroad and 3 trucks bays to supply the local market with these premium products.
“Eco is looking forward to growing our natural gas business with this new asset,” said Eco-Energy EVP of Development Brian Simpson. “Stone Mountain will be a strategic foothold in the Southern Appalachian market that complements our commercial marketing platform. Eco Energy is looking forward to our partnership with the current producer Magnum Hunter Production (a division of Montage Resources). We have worked hard to align incentives that benefit both companies and we look forward to adding new suppliers to the system as well.”
John Reinhart, President and CEO of Montage Resources commented, “We are pleased to be working with the team at Eco-Energy and the expanded natural gas marketing capabilities they provide.”
Fresh off the end to proration discussions in Texas, CEO Matt Gallagher shares how Parsley Energy is responding to demand loss plus the Permian shale producer’s focus on technology and ESG.
“If this is an act of God, maybe I need to find another career because I guess God’s had enough of the oilfield,” said oilfield services worker Nils MacArthur.
Anadarko Petroleum was the only corporate deal Occidental Petroleum considered since the company’s current leadership has been in place, says CFO Cedric Burgher.
