Cardinal Acquires Natural Gas Business in Prolific Delaware Basin to Expand11/28/2022
On November 2, Cardinal Midstream Partners, an independent Dallas-based midstream energy company, concluded definitive agreements with Medallion Midstream Services to purchase Medallion’s natural gas gathering and processing business in the Delaware Basin in West Texas. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in early 2023.
The recently bought midstream infrastructure includes natural gas gathering and processing solutions for top-tier producer customers in the heart of the Delaware Basin. The system includes Reeves and Loving counties and about 80 miles of high- and low-pressure natural gas gathering pipelines and a 140 million cubic feet per day (MMcf/d) natural gas processing facility.
This purchase in the prolific Delaware Basin will serve as the cornerstone of Cardinal’s natural gas gathering and processing business strategy. The business is an ideal fit to leverage our team’s core competencies and industry relationships. The company anticipates building up the asset base and providing meaningful midstream solutions to serve area producers’ development.
Cardinal was the first management team that was backed when EnCap Flatrock was formed in 2008 and Doug Dormer, Cardinal Chief Executive Officer, has been an incredible partner. EnCap Flatrock is enthusiastic about this next chapter of the Cardinal story with the acquisition of this high-quality asset and expects Doug and his team to continue their track record of success.
Being founded in 2022 Cardinal Midstream Partners is focused on the pursuit of midstream acquisition and development opportunities in North America, especially natural gas gathering and processing and congruent carbon capture and sequestration.
The company is managed by four founders: Chief Executive Officer Doug Dormer; Chief Financial Officer Douglas Gale; Chief Commercial Officer Justin Garrity; and Chief Operating Officer Clayton Hewett. With more than 80 years of combined experience in the energy industry, the founders each have built notable careers creating, managing, constructing, and operating successful midstream businesses through a full life cycle.
As global demand development improves production and accompanying midstream infrastructure expansions, Cardinal Midstream Partners plans to build an asset-based midstream platform utilizing a hybrid method concentrated on natural gas gathering and processing, and congruent carbon capture and sequestration (CCS). This unique strategy offers a broad range of opportunities for value creation through acquisitions and greenfield projects.
EnCap Flatrock Midstream provides value-added growth capital to proven management teams focused on midstream infrastructure opportunities across North America. The firm was formed in 2008 by a partnership between EnCap Investments L.P. and Flatrock Energy Advisors, LLC.
Based in San Antonio with offices in Oklahoma City and Houston, the firm manages investment commitments of nearly $9 billion from a broad group of prestigious institutional investors. EnCap Flatrock Midstream is currently making commitments to new management teams from EFM Fund IV, a $3.25 billion fund.

On January 24, Matador spread the word that it will add oil- and gas-producing assets in Lea County, N.M., and Ward County, Texas, and some midstream infrastructure.

The Permian Basin is one of the most important oil and gas basins in the world, located in western Texas and southeastern New Mexico in the United States. Oil drilling and production in the Permian Basin began in the early 1920s. The first significant discovery in the region was made in 1923 in the Westbrook field in Mitchell County, Texas. This discovery led to a boom in oil exploration and production in the area. By the 1930s, the Permian Basin had become one of the major oil-producing regions in the United States, and it continued to grow in importance throughout the 20th century.
