Midstream Connect: A Place That Protects Pipelines And Profits

How will the regulatory environment change in the next six months to a year?

“We hear a lot from customers that are really looking for help,” said Louis Krannich, CEO of Remote Operations Center (ROC). His clients seek solutions for compliance with a host of federal and state pipeline safety regulations. How can a midstream company afford to protect both its assets and its profit margins? That’s the question that Midstream Connect explores in this month’s segment.

What ails Houston ISD isn't just about money

It's true what they say about being unable to avert your eyes from trains that are close to colliding. I've been watching the spectacle of the Houston ISD school board now for two years. If it doesn't change course, the district is quickly approaching a major crash.

The best and the brightest applauded at record-setting Teach for America gala dinner

There are testimonials at fundraising events and then there are testimonials. Some pull at the heartstrings. Others inspire generous giving. The Teach for America dinner was a powerful combination of both. When all was said and done the evening raised a record $1.5 million.

Ex-Pipeline Magnate Foshee Backing Shale Oil Hardware Startup

Five years after engineering El Paso Corp.’s $38 billion sellout to pipeline giant Kinder Morgan Inc., Doug Foshee is bankrolling a Houston startup that makes shale wells cheaper to drill.

Foshee’s Sallyport Investments, along with seasoned oil- industry investor RedBird Capital Partners, put up $130 million to fund Tally Energy Services, according to a statement on Tuesday. Tally, with Foshee as chairman, is focused on lowering the so-called breakeven costs of shale wells by drilling in the prime spots of each field, preventing individual wells from bleeding off each other’s output and installing gear that pumps more crude to the surface. The 58-year-old Foshee was a former Halliburton Co. executive when he joined El Paso as CEO in 2003 and led the company for almost nine years before the Kinder deal. He’s also a former director of the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas’s Houston branch. New York-based RedBird isn’t new to the energy space; it’s wide-ranging portfolio includes Permian Basin driller Four Corners Petroleum II LLC and Aethon United, a partnership with the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Fund that owns oil wells and pipelines.
