Meritage Midstream Services Acquires Wyoming’s Thunder Creek Gas Services From Devon Energy And PVR Partners

Meritage Midstream Services II, LLC (“Meritage”) announced today that it has acquired 100 percent ownership of Thunder Creek Gas Services, LLC (“Thunder Creek”) from Devon Energy Corporation (NYSE: DVN) (“Devon”) and PVR Partners, L.P. (NYSE: PVR) (“PVR”). Established in 1998, Thunder Creek owns and operates natural gas gathering, treating and processing assets in Wyoming’s Powder River Basin, including more than 500 miles of high- and low-pressure gas gathering pipelines, three natural gas treating facilities, compression and gas processing facilities, and various NGL and condensate handling facilities. The transaction closed on Aug. 19.

“The Thunder Creek system is a great addition to the significant midstream footprint we are building in one of the country’s most exciting emerging shale basins,” said Meritage Midstream Chairman and CEO Steve Huckaby. “The Powder River Basin is home to multiple oil and liquids-rich formations, and producers are expanding their drilling programs at a rapid pace. We are fortunate to have a highly experienced team and the capital required to execute an aggressive plan for expansion of the Thunder Creek system.”

Meritage is also developing the Black Thunder Terminal, a joint venture with Arch Coal (NYSE: ACI). Located in Campbell County, Wyoming, at Arch Coal’s Black Thunder mining complex, the terminal will provide storage, blending and rail loading services for crude oil and condensate produced in the Powder River Basin. Meritage expects to expand the Thunder Creek gathering system to provide pipeline service to the terminal.

Huckaby said, “Meritage will be offering an array of midstream services designed to meet the challenges of moving and processing natural gas, NGLs, condensate, crude oil and produced water in a rapid, cost-effective way. Bundling midstream services is a strategy we will continue to pursue. By placing multiple lines in one ditch we can help alleviate truck traffic and provide our customers with meaningful efficiencies and cost savings.”
