Unlocking New Opportunities in Natural Gas

Letter from the President

Oivind in the field

Welcome to the Emkey Energy family business of natural gas gathering and transportation as well as energy marketing.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our new website.

It is my great pleasure to address you today and talk about all the strides we are trying to make here at EmKey Energy.  Even though EmKey commenced business as of June 1st, 2011, our business segments have been in operation since the early 1980’s.

Our business is primarily focused around western Pennsylvania and New York state.  Our dedicated team of experienced employees is headquartered in Erie, PA.

Our business of gas marketing, gathering and transportation, allows us a good foothold in the mid-stream segment of the energy universe.  Our aim is to be a recon quality service provider in this segment, here in Appalachia.

 I would like to thank you for giving us your trust in marketing your gas production or providing both natural gas and electric needs from our affiliate, Mid-American Natural Resources (“MANR”).  We try to do so in a reliable and predictable manner and in fact there has not been a time where we haven’t provided a gas consumer the agreed upon volume of natural gas even in the hardest of winters since MANR was founded back in 1982.  Quite a record.

 This record does not come by itself but it is thanks to my dedicated team members who strive every day to ensure this unique record remains.  This record is topped with the financial performance of always paying our customers on time, which we have repeatedly done since 1982.

In order to facilitate such reliable gas supply service, we find ways to move the gas from the well head to the end user sometimes via our affiliated pipeline system, EmKey Gathering (“EKG”).

We strive to provide value added services.  We have in certain areas consolidated producers own gathering systems and compression as well as provided services such as central drying of gas, all for the benefit of improving the net back to our users.

Our aim is to be the preferred gatherer of natural gas and energy marketing in the Northwestern Appalachian region (Western PA, Eastern Ohio and Southwestern NY).  We want to be a provider of midstream services and build pipeline to the E&P companies drilling operation.  This would allow our customers to focus on drilling wells.  Our Company will move the gas, process and market the products and return a check for the value extracted.  We want to be reliable, predictable and provide market opportunities.  We have 11 delivery points on our system today and are working to further increase this number.  Multiple delivery points improve optionality on where gas is priced the highest.  It is also  less recognized but likely more talked about in the years to come, if pipelines are down for service or capacity constraints, EmKey’s aim is to provide options to move gas to other pipelines.  This allows for more reliability on delivering and provide less shut-ins of production.  We have also been instrumental in gas fired power plants being built with access to gas supply directly from the reliable local market.  The power plant in Jamestown BPU is an example of our performances.

We look forward to updating you on our progress in executing our business plan.  We like to build pipelines and process our customers gas supply.  If we also can market your natural gas and supply you with your electricity needs, our business plan is fully understood.

Please do no hesitate to contact us to sit down with you to further discuss your needs.

Thank you for your interest in EmKey.

Kind Regards,

Øivind Risberg

CEO and President
