Providing Access to Major Interstate Pipelines

for Optimal Market Access

Creole Trail Pipeline Corpus Christi Pipeline Midship Pipeline Company, LLC

Midship Pipeline Company, LLC

Midship Pipeline Company, LLC (“Midship”) is developing a natural gas pipeline project to create firm transportation capacity of up to 1,440,000 Dth/d connecting new gas production in the Anadarko Basin to growing Gulf Coast markets (“Midship Project”). 
The proposed Midship Project will include new-build mainline pipeline as well as three compressor stations, seven receipt meters, four delivery meters, two lateral pipelines with a booster station and two additional receipt meters, and other ancillary facilities.

Midship plans to file its application in May 2017 for a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (“FERC”), the agency responsible for reviewing and authorizing interstate natural gas transmission projects. The FERC will conduct a full review of the project in compliance with two federal statutes, the Natural Gas Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.

Midship would require acceptable commercial and financing arrangements (which may include project financing and offerings by it or its subsidiaries of debt or equity) and regulatory and other approvals before the project begins construction.

Proposed Project Facilities

The proposed Midship Project will consist of approximately 199.4 miles of 36-inch-diameter new-build pipeline that will begin at or near the Okarche Processing Plant near Okarche, Oklahoma and end at Bennington, Oklahoma. The new-build facilities will include a total of three compressor stations, seven receipt meters and four delivery meters. In addition, the following two laterals are also being constructed:

- Chisholm Lateral – approximately 20 miles of 30-inch-diameter new-build pipeline that will begin at the Chisholm Processing Plant in Kingfisher County and end on the mainline of the Midship project near the Okarche Processing Plant.

- Velma Lateral – approximately 13 miles of 12-inch-diamater new-build pipeline that will begin at the Velma Processing Plant in Stephens County and connect to the Sholem Processing Plant ending in Garvin County. A booster station will be located along the Velma Lateral in Stephens County, Oklahoma.

Two additional meter stations will be constructed on the Chisholm and Velma laterals, respectively.
