BOSTON, Sept. 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Midcoast Energy, LLC (“Midcoast”), a subsidiary of ArcLight Energy Partners Fund VI, L.P., (with its affiliates, “ArcLight”) has closed on the sale of its East Texas operating platform (the “East Texas Business”) to Momentum Midstream LLC, a subsidiary of EnCap Flatrock Midstream and other financial partners.
The East Texas Business consists of an East Texas Haynesville-to-Gulf Coast midstream business providing in-basin gathering, processing and treating, as well as long-haul transportation to rapidly growing end-markets, including the U.S. Gulf Coast.
During its ownership of Midcoast, ArcLight invested over $300 million in the expansion of the East Texas Business, including through the development and commercialization of the CJ Express expansion project, providing 1 Bcf/d of natural gas transportation services to the U.S. Gulf Coast LNG markets. The East Texas Business anchored ArcLight’s 2018 acquisition of Midcoast, and the segment realized throughput growth of over 75% during its ownership.
“The East Texas Business plays an important role providing domestic and international markets access to clean, affordable, and reliable energy resources produced in the Haynesville. ArcLight is excited to see it continue to grow under the ownership of the experienced team at Momentum Midstream,” said Dan Revers, Founder and Managing Partner of ArcLight.
