Summit Midstream Partners, LLC Announces Closing Of Bear Tracker Acquisition









DALLAS, Feb. 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Summit Midstream Partners, LLC ("Summit Investments") announced today that it closed the previously announced acquisition of Bear Tracker Energy, LLC on February 15, 2013.  Summit Investments owns and controls the general partner of Summit Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: SMLP) as well as a 69.1% limited partner interest in SMLP.  The acquisition was fully funded with an equity investment from Energy Capital Partners, the majority owner of Summit Investments.  In conjunction with the closing, the acquired company has been renamed Meadowlark Midstream Company, LLC ("Meadowlark").

Meadowlark owns, operates, and is currently developing several crude oil, natural gas, and water gathering systems in the Bakken Shale Play (the "Bakken") in North Dakota and in the Niobrara Shale Play (the "Niobrara") in Colorado.  Meadowlark's North Dakota assets include crude oil, natural gas, and water gathering systems designed to serve producers primarily targeting crude oil production from the Bakken in Mountrail, Burke, Williams and Divide counties.  Meadowlark's Colorado assets include a natural gas gathering system and processing facility designed to handle the casing head natural gas associated with crude oil production from the Niobrara in Weld County.   Meadowlark provides gathering and processing services pursuant to long-term, primarily fee-based gathering agreements with some of the most active producers operating in the Bakken and Niobrara.  These agreements include long-term acreage dedications and many contain long-term minimum volume commitments.  The natural gas gathering system located in Mountrail and Burke counties is currently in service while the crude oil and water gathering systems are under development and expected to commence operations in 2013.

"The acquisition of Meadowlark is transformational for Summit Investments and positions us in the core of two of the fastest growing crude oil basins in North America," said Steve Newby, President and CEO of Summit Investments.  "Meadowlark's service area in the Bakken and Niobrara complement our existing operations and represent a natural progression of asset acquisition and development for Summit Investments in the Rockies.  Once further developed, the Meadowlark assets will be offered to SMLP and we expect them to serve as a growth engine for SMLP over the long-term."
