Midstream companies typically own raw gas pipelines and processing plants to gather and process producers’ raw natural gas before it is injected as sales gas into long-distance pipeline systems for transportation to end-use markets. The midstream sector also includes facilities for the fractionation, storage and transportation of natural gas liquids, or NGLs, which are by-products of natural gas processing, and include ethane, propane, butane and condensate. Midstream companies may also provide marketing services, whereby NGLs are purchased from natural gas producers and sold to customers across North America.
