Noble holds more than 500,000 net acres in northern Colorado’s DJ Basin, with the company’s largest onshore field located in the Wattenberg. According to Noble, production from the DJ represents over a third of the company’s production, which according to EnerCom’s E&P Weekly, was 307 MBOEPD over the trailing twelve months. The company has invested approximately $600 million in DJ midstream infrastructure in order to meet the demand coming from the region according to a company investor presentation.

Noble will own the general partner of Noble Midstream, all of its incentive distribution rights and expects to retain a majority of Noble Midstream’s limited partner interests.
