First, some traditional definitions of Oil & Gas Midstream Services

The petroleum industry is usually divided into three major operational segments: upstream, midstream and downstream. The midstream sector involves the transportation (by pipeline, rail, barge, or truck), storage, and wholesale marketing of natural gas, crude oil or refined petroleum products. Pipelines and other transport systems can be used to move crude oil from production sites to refineries and deliver the various refined products to downstream distributors.   Intrastate and interstate natural gas pipeline networks aggregate gas from gathering systems and natural gas  treating and processing plants and deliver it to downstream customers, such as local utilities and large industrial users  Natural gas treating plants are used to remove impurities from raw natural gas and render it “pipeline quality”, while processing plants remove and produce by-products from the raw natural gas stream such as elemental sulphur and natural gas liquids.

So what makes Marabou Midstream Services the top midstream energy services company throughout the Gulf Coast and Mid-Continent? Marabou prides itself on bringing producers “closer to market” by:

•    Analyzing and optimizing existing contracts (sales, gathering, processing, transportation)
•    Identifying new markets and new downstream gathering, processing and transportation options
•    Analyzing and optimizing existing midstream infrastructure or the design, installation and optimization of new infrastructure
What does that mean?  Simply put, prices for crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids production that are closer to end-user or retail prices mean producers realize higher wellhead netbacks.
