The pipeline partnership between OGE Energy Corp.'s Enogex LLC and Houston-based CenterPoint Energy Inc. finally has a name: Enable Midstream Partners LP.

The companies unveiled the name Wednesday along with some senior leadership appointments, although a chief executive has not been named.

“This is an important next step towards operating as an integrated and united company,” OGE Energy CEO Pete Delaney said. “While we continue to work toward completing our leadership team, the focus today is on establishing the senior operations leadership so that we can work toward serving customers, growing the partnership and living up to our Enable Midstream expectations.”

Enable's new logo, with intersecting blue and green lines, reflects the union of OGE Energy and CenterPoint as they combine strategically located assets serving some of the country's most productive energy plays.

“We chose the name Enable Midstream Partners because it captures the rich heritages of CenterPoint and OGE, reinforces our customer focus and reflects the strength of our employee base,” CenterPoint CEO David M. McClanahan said.

The partnership, which became official May 1, merges Enogex's midstream assets and the pipelines and field services of CenterPoint. It will be an $11 billion company with more than 10,000 miles of pipelines.

Enable, which has about 1,700 employees, will maintain offices in Oklahoma City and Houston, but its executive management team is expected to be based in Oklahoma City.
