After eight months, Enable Midstream Partners LP has found its president and CEO.

General partners for the Oklahoma City-based pipeline and processing partnership said Thursday Lynn L. Bourdon III will start at the company Feb. 1.

Bourdon, 51, comes to Enable Midstream from Houston-based Enterprise Products Partners LP, where he was group senior vice president of natural gas liquids and natural gas marketing, petrochemical, refined products and marine services. Bourdon has been at Enterprise since 2003 and served in several senior management positions at the company.

Enable Midstream was formed in May when OGE Energy Corp.'s Enogex midstream division combined with the interstate pipeline assets of Houston-based CenterPoint Energy Inc.

“This search has taken some time, but it was very important to the board that we identify a leader that can build on our combined strengths, move us forward with our integration efforts and position us for an IPO (initial public offering) in 2014,” said Pete Delaney, Enable Midstream board member and president and CEO of OGE Energy. “We believe Lynn is the leader best suited to accomplish that immediate mission and carry us into the future.”

Scott Prochazka, Enable Midstream board member and CEO of CenterPoint Energy, said Bourdon's experience and background made him the ideal choice to lead the company. Bourdon has worked at Dow Chemical Co. and was a senior vice president and chief commercial officer for Orion Refining Corp. He has a bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering from Texas Tech University and a master of business administration degree from the University of Houston.
