Baker Botts represented Moda Midstream in acquisition of Oxy Ingleside Energy Center Terminal from Occidental Petroleum
Liquids terminaling and logistics provider Moda Midstream, LLC (“Moda”) announced it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire the Oxy Ingleside Energy Center (“IEC” or the “Ingleside Energy Center”) and certain crude oil and LPG infrastructure from Occidental Petroleum Corporation (NYSE: OXY). Moda is partnered with equity capital provider EnCap Flatrock Midstream (“EFM”).
The transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2018, subject to customary closing conditions. As part of the transaction, Moda will acquire the IEC, a storage and export terminal designed to handle a wide range of vessels, including very large crude carriers, and connected directly to multiple “next generation” long-haul crude pipelines that link Eagle Ford Shale and Permian Basin production to key domestic and international markets, enabling the IEC to provide access to global markets for crude oil and LPG producers and marketers.
Moda will also acquire certain crude oil pipeline assets and offsite logistics locations.
The transaction value was not disclosed, but the transaction is part of a $2.6 billion midstream divestiture package announced by Oxy on August 8, 2018.
Baker Botts L.L.P. represented Moda Midstream, LLC in this transaction.
As discussed in the HPI Market Data 2019 report, published in November by Gas Processing & LNG’s sister publication, Hydrocarbon Processing, rising propane and ethane supplies in the US have been enabled by greater production of shale gas.

GasPro 2.0: A Webcast Symposium
The global LNG industry is becoming increasingly interconnected as grassroots export projects get off the ground. Another technology route for processing gas into fuels—GTL—is attracting renewed attention due to improving economics. Small-scale solutions for both LNG and GTL are at the forefront of new technological developments, while major projects using more conventional technologies continue to start up around the world.
During this webcast, we will focus on LNG, GTL, gas processing technology developments and deployments, operations, small-scale solutions, transportation, trading, distribution, safety, regulatory affairs, business analysis and more.
