    Where Does Your Midstream Investment Stand

    Today Energy Point Research announces that MarkWest Energy, Williams and Sunoco Logistics captured the top three rankings, respectively, in the Energy Point Research’s 2013 Midstream Services Customer Satisfaction Survey. The biennial survey is the leading independently conducted benchmark study focusing on the oil and gas industry’s satisfaction with midstream service providers.
    Overall, first place in the survey was again won by MarkWest Energy, which also took the top honors in Energy Point’s last midstream survey conducted in 2011. The Denver-based company’s strong showing was led by first-place rankings in several key categories, including onshore gas gathering, project development and operations. The company also took top honors in both the fast-growing Appalachian Basin / Marcellus and Ark-La-Tex regions.

    Doug Sheridan, managing director of Energy Point Research, commented: “Midstream services within the domestic U.S. remains one of the most dynamic and hotly contested segments within the oil and gas industry. MarkWest Energy’s commitment to quality and customer service, exemplified by this year’s survey results, continues to resonate with customers, who are progressively looking for more reliable operations and deeper project-development capabilities from midstream service suppliers.”

    Midstream Services is one of five major oil- and gas-supply segments rated as part of Energy Point Research’s industry-wide benchmark studies. This year’s survey consisted of over 800 in-depth evaluations by qualified professionals at more than 200 customers of domestic oil and gas midstream service providers. The survey succeeds a similar midstream study conducted and published by Energy Point Research in 2011, as well as other biennial surveys dating back to 2006. Runner-up Williams, which rated third overall in Energy Point Research’s 2011 survey, saw its ranking boosted in part by a first-place ranking in the area of systems and administration. - Cont.

    • NIce post, thanks for the input. Confirms why the institutions, and funds are buying MWE.......well run, well managed, and sustained growth from their capital resources. I am still expecting a market correction to some degree so I can double down on MWE holdings, first buy-in on 6/4/2012 it's been one of my top performers. Two MLP funds I own have significantly increased MWE shares over the last year so I am getting a bigger piece as they buy.

    • ..Cont. The company also posted strong marks in personnel and corporate capabilities. Sunoco Logistics, a newcomer to the survey this year, rounded out the survey’s top three overall and captured the number one ranking in onshore crude gathering and in the Mid-continent region. Other providers placing first in at least one category in the survey include:

      Center Point Energy Field Services in gas compression; DCP Midstream in gas processing and treating; Eagle Rock Energy in gas and NGL purchasing; Energy Transfer in the Texas Intrastate region; Enterprise Products in NGL fractionation, offshore crude gathering and transportation, the Onshore Gulf Coast, and the Gulf of Mexico; Kinder Morgan in gas transportation; ONEOK in gas storage and the U.S. Rockies; Plains All American in crude storage and terminaling, and crude transportation; Targa Resources in NGL transportation and storage and in the Permian Basin region.

      Other midstream service providers rated in the survey, listed alphabetically, include Anadarko Midstream / WGP, Atlas Pipeline, Buckeye Partners, Crosstex, Enbridge, Enogex and Regency Energy Partners.
      For the first time, this year’s survey included ratings for oil-related categories such as crude transportation and storage & terminaling. “Sustained price signals in oil markets, along with successful transference of horizontal drilling and shale-related completion techniques, have resulted in significant activity in crude-producing regions of the U.S.,” said Sheridan. “Many midstream suppliers who previously specialized only in natural gas- and NGL-related services have, in some cases out of necessity, transitioned well to providing crude-related services as well.”
