Enogex Releases UT, OK Assets
OGE Energy's subsidiary Enogex, has completed the sale of several non-core
assets in Utah and in Oklahoma. The assets were considered non-core by
the company after it completed its acquisition of Transok LLC for $701
million in July 1999 (see NGI, May 24, 1999).
The assets that were sold include interests in natural gas and oil properties
in Utah and three natural gas-gathering pipeline systems in Oklahoma. Enogex
sold all of its interests in oil and gas properties in Utah, including
rights, equipment, real property and leases. The company sold the three
Oklahoma pipeline systems to Seminole Gas of Tulsa, OK. Included in the
sale was its Piedmont and El Reno systems in Canadian County, and the Fidelity
gathering system in Oklahoma County. All gathering lines, compressors,
and related equipment along with contracts and rights of way were included

"We said when we financed the Transok acquisition that we would
pursue opportunities to sell non-core assets to generate cash for debt
service," said James R. Hatfield, senior vice president, OGE Energy.
"With these sales, we're following through on that commitment."
Enogex's acquisition of the Transok pipeline system last year formed
one of the 10 largest natural gas pipelines in the United States.
