When Everard Marks acquired his first pipeline system (after his joint venture in Harvest-Marks Pipeline, LLC), the throughput from the new pipeline system terminated at the Empire Terminal in Plaquemines Parish, Louisiana. Hence, the company was named Empire Pipeline LLC. Thereafter, as the name Empire became synonymous with Mr. Marks and other projects we were pursuing, the name of the original Empire Pipeline LLC was changed to Breton Sound Gathering LLC, and a new Empire Pipeline LLC was formed as the development, operating and management company for our crude oil pipeline ventures and affiliated companies.
Since our inception as a development, operating and management company, Empire has expanded beyond crude oil pipelines to include a crude oil storage and blending terminal, an investment in a filtration and recycling facility for oil and gas flowback water, a saltwater disposal well for oil and gas produced and filtered flowback water, and management services for others. So with our more diverse portfolio in the oil and gas midstream sector, we decided to change our name to Empire Midstream LLC. Our new identity more accurately reflects our expanded footprint of midstream businesses and services.
