Superior Pipeline Co. LLC has entered into a long-term, fee-based natural gas gathering and processing agreement with an active producer in the Stack play on March 18.
The agreement replaces a prior contract with Superior, expanding the producer’s dedication area to approximately 345,000 gross acres. The Cashion system includes two cryogenic processing plants located in Kingfisher County, Oklahoma.
Within the acreage dedicated to Superior, the producer expects to continue development of four production zones in the Stack—the Oswego, Mississippian, Woodford, and Hunton formations in central Oklahoma.
“We are pleased to further our relationship with such an active and successful producer. This is another step in Superior’s plan to expand our existing assets, while also continuing to acquire synergistic midstream assets,” Mike Hicks, Superior’s COO, said.
Superior is a joint venture owned 50% by Unit Corp. and 50% by SP Investor Holdings LLC, a holding company jointly owned by OPTrust and funds managed and/or advised by Partners Group, a global private markets investment manager.
The IEA predicted global oil demand and supply were set to re-balance in the second half of the year and that producers may then need to pump 2 million bbl/d more to meet the expected demand.
Supply discipline and rebounding economies are set to give oil a chance to break out of the recent range, Goldman Sachs analysts said in a report.
A few days before the April 1 meeting, OPEC+ delegates had said the group would likely keep most existing oil output cuts in place. But in the 24 hours before the meeting started, sources said discussions had shifted to a possible output increase.
