Midship donation to Tatmus

The Tatums Community Center received a donation from Midship Pipeline Company. Giving the award was Matt Barr, Director of Government and Public Affairs at Midship Pipeline Company to Lovie Carter, Tatums Community Organization, and Pinky Hurley, Mayor, on Nov. 8.

Midship Pipeline Company is continuing their $635,000 Community Contribution Program in Oklahoma with a donation to Tatums Community Center. The donation is in conjunction with the Midship Project, where the camp is “reinvesting” money where a natural gas pipeline will go through.

The $20,000 for capital improvements to the center are for labor and materials to restore and update the center with a new roof, new flooring, appliances and AV equipment, among other various updates.

Representative of District 48 Tammy Townley was on hand during the check presentation.

“It brings me great joy when a local company addresses a tangible need in the community,” said Townley in a release. “Midship is setting a great example of a thoughtful corporate citizen that is continually meeting the needs of its neighbors. I am personally grateful for Midship’s support of Carter County.”

The Midship Project is a natural gas pipeline project connecting new gas production from the emerging STACK and SCOOP plays in the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma to growing Gulf Coast and Southeast markets via deliveries to existing pipelines. When complete, the approximately 200-mile pipeline will run through eight Western Oklahoma counties, including Kingfisher, Canadian, Grady, Garvin, Stephens, Carter, Johnston and Bryan.

Through a grant process, Midship worked with the town of Tatums to identify the best use of the community grant funds and how to maximize impact for the residents of Tatums and surrounding communities, according to Matt Barr, Director of Government and Public Affairs, Midship Pipeline Company.

“Tatums is important to Midship’s operation as the area is home to one of our compressor stations,” he said. “We know how important a center like this is to a community and we are honored to make this donation.”
