Crude oil, natural gas production filling SemGroup pipelines, storage tanks

The Tulsa-based midstream company's infrastructure expansions are driving its growth.

“SemGroup's role as a midstream company is to connect the producers of oil and gas with the end users,” Szydlowski said. “We partner with exploration and production companies to identify areas where expanded or new infrastructure is needed. ... It's an exciting time for companies like ours — matching infrastructure capacity with the country's growing oil and gas production.”

In the last 15 months, SemGroup has doubled its gas processing capacity in northern Oklahoma and plans to add more capacity in 2013. The company's SemGas unit has three gas processing plants and 800 miles of gathering pipelines that serve the Mississippi Lime and Granite Wash plays.

Meanwhile, SemGroup, like other energy companies, is mindful of regulatory initiatives and its effect on the communities where it operates.

“We know that we operate at the license of the communities where our operations are located,” Szydlowski said.

“Being appropriately protective of people and the environment is a basic tenet for us. No one is perfect. But, designing oil and gas infrastructure and operating it safely can be done and has a long track record of successful performance.”
