The Summit Utica system is a natural gas gathering system located in Belmont and Monroe counties in southeastern Ohio and serves producers targeting the dry-gas reserves of the Utica and Point Pleasant shale formations.

Ohio Gathering

Ohio Gathering comprises a natural gas gathering system and condensate stabilization facility located in the Utica Shale in southeastern Ohio. The gathering system spans the condensate, liquids-rich and dry-gas windows of the Utica Shale for multiple producers that are targeting production from the Utica and Point Pleasant shale formations across Belmont, Monroe, Guernsey, Harrison and Noble counties in southeastern Ohio.

Heath Deneke, President, Chief Executive Officer, and Chairman, commented, "As we evaluate the strategic and commercial opportunities for our existing assets, we believe there are several value optimizing strategies to pursue to further build scale, particularly in our Permian and Rockies segments.

“We continue to believe in the sizeable growth potential of the Delaware Basin and expect to further commercialize Double E's available pipeline capacity. We are confident there are additional commercial opportunities, similar to the recently announced Janus Processing Plant connection, that will continue to drive incremental free cash flow and the value of the pipeline.

“Further, we believe the DJ Basin and Williston Basin remain fragmented with a sizeable opportunity to pursue value-accretive and synergistic bolt-on acquisitions and organic growth opportunities.
