The firm has entered into a long term agreement with Range Resources Corporation as the initial producer for the new plant.

This plant, along with existing assets accessing the Mississippian trend, will bring overall processing capacity in the region to over 100 MMcf per day.

Start-up of the facility is expected to occur during the second quarter of 2012.

Superior president Bob Parks said the construction of this new plant is consistent with Superior’s strategic plan to build greenfield gathering and processing assets in the Mississippian trend.

"We are constructing this plant with the flexibility to accommodate future expansions as we contract to receive additional gas volumes in northern Oklahoma" added Parks.

Tulsa-based Unit Corporation is engaged through its subsidiaries in oil and gas exploration, production, contract drilling and gas gathering and processing.
