Economic Impacts

The Midship Pipeline will create jobs and generate revenues for Oklahoma and local governments along the pipeline route. Just as importantly, it will help to ease a natural gas transportation bottleneck and support economic growth across the state through development of the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province (“SCOOP”) and South Central Oklahoma Oil Province (“STACK”) shale gas plays.

Expanding Jobs

Midship will hire and source locally where feasible to provide benefits to adjacent communities. Experts have estimated the economic benefits of Midstream development will include:

Investing in Communities

Midship expects to be a contributing member of the communities along the pipeline route for a long time. That’s why we’re prioritizing our community investments in three areas: first responders support, agricultural education, and science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education.

Oklahoma's First Responders

Through our outreach to first responders – who will be important partners during construction and operation of the pipeline – we learned how resource-constrained their operations are and what a difference additional support could make. As a result, in November 2017, Midship announced $200,000 in contributions to rural fire departments across western Oklahoma located along the pipeline’s route. These gifts were intended to help Oklahoma’s first responders continue to protect public safety in rural Oklahoma communities.

In addition, the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture worked with Midship to identify 64 rural fire departments along the pipeline route in need of donations to better equip their firefighters. The Midship Project was honored to present a donation of $200,000 to brave firefighters who selflessly protect their communities every day.

Oklahoma Youth Expo

We focus on youth education because today’s students are tomorrow’s workforce and community members. In March 2018, Midship Pipeline served as a gold sponsor of the world’s largest junior livestock show – the Oklahoma Youth Expo at the State Fair Park in Oklahoma City. Midship also hosted a special lunch for agriculture educators in the eight counties along the pipeline’s path. The Expo offers programs, awards and scholarships to thousands of participating youth, all of which help to build a better, stronger rural Oklahoma.

Stack Summer Classic

As part of the Oklahoma Oil & Gas Association’s (OKOGA) new community outreach program, OKOGA and Midship sponsored its first STACK Summer Classic pig show on July 24, 2017, in Kingfisher, Okla. More than 100 youth from across Oklahoma participated in the showing of 275 pigs at the Kingfisher Fairgrounds. Due to sponsorships from Midship and other OKOGA member companies that covered operational costs, all entry fees went toward awarding more than $10,000 in cash and prizes.
