Edward E. Cohen, Chairman and CEO of the general partner of the Partnership, stated "Our purchase of the remaining interest in NOARK provides us with additional benefit of operations that are core to our business. This transaction clearly demonstrates the commitment to our strategy to grow our business through a well-positioned and consistent asset base."
Robert R. Firth, President of Atlas Pipeline Mid-Continent LLC, the subsidiary of the Partnership which operates NOARK, stated "We are encouraged that this acquisition provides additional fixed-fee revenues to the Partnership and increases the Partnership's proportion of assets yielding steady, FERC-regulated cash flows. The completion of this acquisition also allows us to more efficiently operate the NOARK system and concentrate on future potential expansion opportunities in the region. We believe that the NOARK system should continue to be a primary option for natural gas transmission from the Fayetteville Shale."
