East Daley: Significant Increases in U.S. Oil and Gas Production to Boost U.S. Midstream Sector in 2018

Daley Capital Advisors, Inc., an energy assets research and data
firm redefining how markets view risk in midstream and exploration and
production (E&P) companies, released a new report identifying key
factors that are poised to give a much-needed boost to the U.S. oil and
gas midstream sector in 2018. The newly released report, “2018 Guidance
Outlook: Opportunities Abound for Midstream Investors,” shows how
anticipated increases in production in crude oil and natural gas will
have a positive impact on many well-positioned midstream companies in

“The most influential midstream theme in 2018 is our forecast for
significant oil and gas production growth,” said Justin Carlson, VP and
Managing Director, Research at East Daley Capital. “The main lag with
production in 2017 has been the long lead time for contracting frac
crews needed to complete the newly-drilled wells. We see that changing
dramatically in 2018. We do not anticipate that being an issue next year
as field service providers are really ramping up their frac fleets.
Completions will increase significantly in 2018.”

The report says the Bakken formation, located primarily in North Dakota,
will rebound from 2017 levels and midstream companies located in that
region will benefit greatly. East Daley sees a turnaround in the Bakken
as rig activity has increased steadily throughout 2017 as crude prices
stabilized. Given current prices, guidance from producers and service
companies, and the stable forward curve, EDC forecasts that well
completions in the Bakken will continue to grow, leading to robust basin
growth in 2018. The forecasted production growth will positively impact
basin midstream companies such as ONEOK (OKE), Kinder Morgan (KMI),
Targa (TRGP), Enbridge (EEP), and Tallgrass (TEP).

“The Marcellus will continue to be the best location for midstream
companies exposed to natural gas,” said Carlson. “Production in the
Northeast is poised to ramp up significantly in 2018 as new pipeline
projects debottleneck the region. Given our optimistic forecast for
Northeast gas production, midstream companies levered to the area such
as Energy Transfer (ETP), MPLX (MPLX), EQT Midstream (EQM), Williams
(WPZ), Antero Midstream (AM), and Rice Midstream (RMP) should continue
to benefit.”

Key findings from the 2018 Guidance Outlook:

East Daley’s analysis indicates that impending 2018 midstream
financial guidance announcements could deviate significantly from
market expectations

East Daley’s 2018 overall adjusted-EBITDA forecasts skew positive vs.
current market consensus, indicating midstream sentiment may be too

Pessimistic midstream sentiment, higher production growth, and natural
gas contract risk are three major themes that will drive the midstream
sector in 2018
