Noble Midstream Partners LP said Jan. 6 that Robin H. Fielder, a former executive of Andarko Petroleum and its midstream affiliate, was appointed president and COO.
Fielder began her career with Anadarko Petroleum in 2002 and has held a variety of positions within the company and its MLP—Western Midstream Partners LP.
Most recently, she served as president, CEO and director of Western Midstream and senior vice president of midstream and marketing at Anadarko. She left both companies in August following the acquisition of Anadarko by Occidental Petroleum Corp.
Overall, Fielder has nearly 20 years of experience in the oil and gas industry across a wide range of disciplines, including reservoir engineering, upstream and midstream planning, as well as investor relations, according to Noble press release.
In a statement, Fielder said: “I am thrilled to be joining the leadership team at Noble Midstream and the greater Noble Energy family. The midstream organization has built strong crude oil, natural gas, and water gathering businesses in both the D-J (Denver-Julesburg) and Delaware Basins, as well as a complementary long-haul pipeline portfolio.”
In addition to her position at Noble Midstream, she will also serve as senior vice president of midstream for Noble Energy Inc. Fielder’s appointment is effective Jan. 13. She will report to Noble Midstream CEO Brent Smolik, who also serves as president and COO of Noble Energy.
Noble Midstream is an MLP formed in December 2014 by Houston-based Noble Energy with the intention for the company to become its primary vehicle for midstream operations in the onshore U.S. outside of the Marcellus Shale. Noble took the company public in September 2016 in a $300 million IPO.
In November, Noble increased its ownership in Noble Midstream through a dropdown transaction worth about $1.6 billion in cash and stock. The transaction was the result of a strategic review launched early last year.
Noble Midstream currently provides crude oil, natural gas and water-related midstream services in the D-J Basin in Colorado and the Permian’s Delaware sub-basin in Texas, the company release said.

The 27 high-impact discoveries made by wells drilled last year collectively pushed discovered commercial volumes to a level not seen since 2015, report shows.
