As of year-end 2012, the company had invested slightly over $1 billion in its midstream operations in the Fayetteville Shale and ~$200 million in its midstream operations in Pennsylvania and East Texas. Revenues and EBITDA from the company’s midstream operations have grown over the years, as SWN continues to invest in expanding its midstream operations and collect fees on the natural gas it transports and markets. SWN noted in its most recent 10-K that it expects operating income and EBITDA from its midstream segment to continue to grow over the next few years as it continues to drill and produce from the Fayetteville and Marcellus shales.
