Summit Midstream Partners, formed in 2009 and headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas, operates natural gas, crude oil and produced water gathering (pipeline) systems in six unconventional resource basins, including the Marcellus and Utica. The company concentrates its time and money on four “core focus areas” including: the Utica, the Williston (i.e. Bakken), the DJ Basin and the Permian. The Marcellus is part of the company’s “legacy” systems that don’t get as much love (and money). Earlier this year we speculated that maybe the Summit’s Marcellus assets would be posted for sale (see Summit Midstream: M-U Volumes Decrease; Marcellus for Sale?). So far that hasn’t happened. Summit recently issued its third quarter 2019 update.
