Summit Midstream Partners, LP Completes Bolt-on Acquisitions in the DJ Basin
HOUSTON, Dec. 1, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Summit Midstream Partners, LP (NYSE: SMLP) (“Summit”, “SMLP” or the “Partnership”) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, Summit Midstream Holdings, LLC (“SMP Holdings”), successfully closed on the previously announced DJ Basin acquisitions of Outrigger DJ Midstream LLC (“Outrigger DJ”) and Sterling Energy Investments LLC, Grasslands Energy Marketing LLC and Centennial Water Pipelines LLC (collectively, “Sterling DJ”) for approximately $305 million in cash. The acquisition of Outrigger DJ and Sterling DJ combined with the previously announced divestitures of the Lane G&P and Bison Gas Systems represents a meaningful step forward on Summit’s overall corporate strategy to streamline its portfolio and create value through reinvestment in accretive transactions that build scale in our core growth basins. Summit funded these acquisitions through a combination of borrowings under Summit’s credit facility and an issuance of $85 million of Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due in 2026. With the official closing of these transactions, efforts are now fully underway to integrate and optimize the Outrigger DJ, Sterling DJ and Summit-Hereford gas gathering and processing assets, which we believe will meaningfully improve the availability of safe, reliable and efficient midstream services for northern DJ Basin producers while creating meaningful value for SMLP’s stakeholders going forward.
