Crestwood Equity Partners LP has detailed changes to its board of directors following the merger between Oasis Petroleum and Whiting.

On July 1, 2022, Oasis Petroleum Inc., Crestwood’s largest customer in the Williston Basin, completed its merger with Whiting Petroleum Corp., forming Chord Energy Corp. The formation of Chord creates a financially strong unconventional U.S. oil producer focused on development in the Williston Basin.

Following the formation of Chord, Oasis has transferred to Chord its Crestwood common units and its contractual right to nominate two members to the Board of Directors of Crestwood’s general partner, Crestwood Equity GP, LLC, which right was received by Oasis as part of Crestwood’s acquisition of Oasis Midstream Partners LP and is subject to meeting on-going ownership thresholds.

As a result, the previously appointed members by Oasis to the Board of Directors, Mr. John Lancaster, Jr. and Mr. John Jacobi, resigned effective July 1, 2022. Chord has nominated Ms. Samantha F. Holroyd and Mr. Paul J. Korus to serve as their replacements. Crestwood expects that Ms. Holroyd and Mr. Korus will be formally appointed to the Board of Directors in the coming weeks.

Following these changes, the Crestwood Board of Directors will consist of ten members of which 90% are independent, 40% are female representatives, and 50% have three or less years of tenure.

Robert G. Phillips, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Crestwood, commented, “Crestwood would like to congratulate Oasis and Whiting on the successful formation of Chord. The combination creates a leading Williston Basin upstream company that shares our sustainability values focused on safety, operational and environmental integrity, and carbon management. I also want to thank Mr. Lancaster and Mr. Jacobi for their service and counsel and look forward to welcoming Ms. Holroyd and Mr. Korus to the Board of Directors and benefitting from their extensive industry experience and knowledge. The integration of Oasis Midstream, which began on February 1, 2022, is going well and the completion of the Chord merger is another important step in building a strategic alignment between Crestwood and Chord based on exceptional customer service as Chord develops the highly economic Williston Basin.”
