Natural Gas Midstream Operations This segment consists of the company's investment in Enable Midstream Partners, LP (Enable). Enable engages in the business of gathering, processing, transporting and storing natural gas. Enable's natural gas gathering and processing assets are located in four states and serve natural gas production from shale developments in the Anadarko, Arkoma and Ark-La-Tex basins. Enable also owns an emerging crude oil gathering business in the Bakken shale formation, principally located in the Williston basin. Enable's natural gas transportation and storage assets extend from western Oklahoma and the Texas Panhandle to Alabama and from Louisiana to Illinois. Enable serves major production areas in the United States, including various unconventional shale resource plays and local and regional end-user markets in the United States. Enable's assets and operations are organized into two reportable segments: gathering and processing, which primarily provides natural gas gathering, processing and fractionation services and crude oil gathering for its producer customers, and interstate and intrastate natural gas pipeline transportation and storage service primarily to natural gas producers, utilities and industrial customers. As of December 31, 2014, Enable's portfolio of energy infrastructure assets included approximately 11,900 miles of gathering pipelines, 12 major processing plants with approximately 2.1 billion cubic feet per day of processing capacity, approximately 7,900 miles of interstate pipelines (including Southeast Supply Header, LLC), approximately 2,300 miles of intrastate pipelines and eight storage facilities providing approximately 87.5 billion cubic feet of storage capacity. Enable conducts a portion of its operations through joint ventures with third parties, including Spectra Energy; DCP Midstream Partners, LP; Trans Louisiana Gas Pipeline, Inc.; and Pablo Gathering LLC. Strategy The company's corporate strategy is to continue to maintain its existing business mix and diversified asset position of its regulated electric utility business and interest in a publicly traded midstream company, while providing competitive energy products and services to customers as well as seeking growth opportunities in both businesses.
