TOP Secret deal: an asset acquisition by Superior Pipeline was made in complete anonymity11/15/2021
Who is the mysterious seller: Durango or Tenawa? We shall see.
It has been announced that Superior Pipeline Co. LLC was successful in its purchase of natural gas gathering and processing assets in central Kansas. These assets consist of a 1,620-mile gathering system and an 85 MMcf/d cryogenic processing plant. No financial details of the deal have been disclosed as of yet.
At least for now, it remains unclear who is the other party in this transaction. In a bid to amend this secret, we narrowed the circle of likely suspects with the help of our market data to just two of them: Durango and Tenawa. According to our maps, they both suit the profile perfectly. Yet further investigation is needed.
As of Nov. 1, 2021, the acquisition became financially effective. Superior's existing infrastructure in the area will be majorly complemented by it: with the added capacity, the company will be able to serve more operators in the Midcontinent, which should expand its customer base.
According to Bill Ward, the company's senior vice president of commercial activities, this acquisition is one more step in Superior Pipeline's growth strategy that aims to consolidate synergistic assets in its core area in order to increase value for shareholders.
As for Superior Pipeline Co. LLC itself, this midstream energy company boasts full-service capabilities for natural gas gathering, handling, compression, dehydration, transportation, and marketing of natural gas and NGL.
Superior's expanding operations are spread all across the Texas and Oklahoma panhandle, Central-Western Oklahoma, Southeast Oklahoma, Southeast Texas, and the Appalachian region which includes Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Its midstream service volumes exceed 465 MMcf/d, while throughput volumes of NGL are way over 700,000 gallons/day already. And those numbers are only set to expand thanks to the mentioned transaction.
This secretive company is a joint venture, owned equally by Unit Corporation and SP Investor Holdings, LLC, a holding company, which simultaneously belongs to OPTrust and Partners Group, a global private markets investment manager.

TC Energy, the Canadian gas giant, recently announced its environmental, social, and governance goals, as well as emission reduction strategies. The company aims to become 100% emission-free by 2050 while promising to cut greenhouse gas emissions intensity from its operations by 30% by 2030 as an interim measure.
Occidental Petroleum is looking into selling Western Midstream Partners. OXY focuses on natural gas pipelines in the U.S. and is worth around $20 billion, including its debt. This sale could help the company cut down its large debt of $18.5 billion, which grew due to buying other companies. Recently, Occidental agreed to buy CrownRock for $12 billion, adding more debt to its books. This comes after its huge $54 billion purchase of Anadarko Petroleum four years ago. The news about possibly selling Western Midstream made its shares go up by 5.7% to $30.81, reaching their highest value since July 2019. However, Occidental's shares fell by 1.6% to $59.56, as part of a wider drop among energy companies.

Compared to the previous quarter, the total value of M&A deals in Canada grew by 20% from $3.5 billion and jumped 95% compared to the same quarter the previous year. However, the number of deals dropped slightly by 4% from the previous quarter and was 23% less than the year before.
