New name for OGE Energy's new midstream partnership?

by Jay F. Marks Published: July 31, 2013

At the beginning of May, OGE Energy Corp. closed a deal with Houston’s CenterPoint Energy Inc. to combine their midstream operations into an $11 billion company with more than 8,400 miles of interstate pipelines and 2,300 miles of intrastate pipelines.

Details about the newly created master limited partnership have been sparse since then, but that could be changing soon.

CenterPoint applied for a trademark in June for the name Enable Midstream Partners.

The company also produced a video announcing the new name. A link to the video was posted on OKCTalk.com on Wednesday morning, but the video is not part of the company’s slate on YouTube.

“CenterPoint Energy and OGE have combined their midstream operations. The partnership announces a new name – Enable Midstream Partners, LP – which reflects each company’s considerable strengths. This video explains the rationale behind the name Enable Midstream Partners, which becomes one of the largest players in the midstream market,” according to the text accompanying the video.

Neither company has responded to a request for comment on the video.
