Field Gathering & Processing

The Field Gathering and Processing segment's assets are located in the Permian Basin of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico; the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas; the Barnett Shale in North Texas; the Anadarko, Ardmore, and Arkoma Basins in Oklahoma (including the SCOOP and STACK) and South Central Kansas; and the Williston Basin in North Dakota. The natural gas processed in this segment is supplied through our gathering systems which, in aggregate, consist of approximately 27,000 miles of natural gas pipelines and include 37 owned and operated processing plants. During 2017, we processed an average of 2,744.8 MMcf/d of natural gas and produced an average of 294.6 MBbl/d of NGLs. 
 
In addition to our natural gas gathering and processing, our Badlands operations include a crude oil gathering system and four terminals with crude oil operational storage capacity of 125 MBbl, and our Permian operations include a crude oil gathering system and two terminals with crude oil operational storage capacity of 20 MBbl. During 2017, we gathered an average of 143.4 MBbl/d of crude oil. 
 
Positioned for Growth
We believe we are well positioned as a gatherer and processor in the Permian Basin, Eagle Ford Shale, Barnett Shale, Anadarko, Ardmore, Arkoma and Williston Basins. We believe proximity to production and development activities allows us to compete for new supplies of natural gas and crude oil partially because of our lower competitive cost to connect new wells and to process additional natural gas in our existing processing plants and because of our reputation for reliability. Additionally, because we operate all our plants in these basins, we are often able to redirect natural gas among our processing plants, which are often interconnected in these regions, providing operational flexibility and allowing us to optimize processing efficiency and further improve the profitability of our operations.
 
The Field Gathering and Processing's operations consist of Permian Midland, Permian Deleware, SouthTX, North Texas, SouthOK, WestOK and Badlands, each as described below.
Permian Midland
The Permian Midland operations consist of the San Angelo Operating Unit ("SAOU") and WestTX.
 
Permian Deleware
The Permian Deleware operations consist of Sand Hills and Versado.
