Texas Locke Lord Team Represents ARB Midstream in Subsidiary Merger With Elevation Midstream

A Locke Lord Texas team led by David Wilhelm, Rachel Fitzgerald and Eric Larson (all of Houston) represented ARB Midstream (ARB), a privately held energy company based in Denver, Colorado, that provides crude oil and gas liquids midstream and marketing/logistics solutions in North America, in a merger to create a premier growth-oriented Denver-Julesburg (DJ) midstream company. Platte River Holdings (Platte River), a subsidiary of ARB, combined with Elevation Midstream, LLC (Elevation), an energy midstream gathering and processing company based in Denver, to form a midstream system of significant scale in the DJ Basin. Platte River’s assets include more than 200 miles of crude gathering and transmission pipelines and offer multi-market optionality to customers via the Platteville and Lucerne Terminals, including truck offloading. The combination of Elevation and Platte River creates a platform for organic growth and basin consolidation through targeted M&A via an expansive footprint, world-class facilities and a strong balance sheet.
