Revealing its financial performance for the three-month period ending on March 31, 2024, Summit Midstream (SMLP) reported a diminished net leverage ratio of approximately 3.9x, marking a considerable decline from 5.4x in the fourth quarter of 2023, thereby advancing towards the targeted 3.5x net leverage threshold.

Summit Midstream disclosed a net income of $132.9 million, adjusted EBITDA of $70.1 million, cash flow available for distributions amounting to $32.5 million, and free cash flow (“FCF”) totaling $17.2 million.

The financial and operational results for the first quarter of 2024 at Summit Midstream were generally as anticipated by management, notwithstanding severe winter conditions in the DJ Basin affecting volumes in January.

Having previously announced the Utica transaction and the recent divestment of its Mountaineer Gathering System in West Virginia to Antero Midstream LLC, Summit Midstream has now entirely withdrawn from the Northeast segment. It will now concentrate on various organic and bolt-on acquisition opportunities within our Rockies and Permian segments.

Operational activity at Summit Midstream was notably robust in the quarter, with the connection of 71 wells to the system, predominantly from the Rockies region, constituting nearly half of the total well connections projected for 2024, adjusting for the amalgamated Northeast asset divestitures.

Customers in the remaining segments are proceeding with well completions according to schedule, maintaining their original timing projections for future wells. Consequently, Summit Midstream’s revised 2024 Adjusted EBITDA guidance range of $170 million to $200 million remains broadly consistent with its initial guidance for the year, adjusted to exclude the full-year contributions of the Northeast segment divestitures.

In the Permian region, Summit Midstream continued to make significant strides in commercializing the available firm capacity on the Double E Pipeline, as natural gas production continues to increase in the Delaware Basin.
