Welcome to Mid American Natural Resources, LLC a subsidiary of Emkey Energy, a regional family of natural gas gathering, transportation, and energy marketing businesses.

I would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our new website.

It is my great pleasure to talk about all the strides we are making here. EmKey officially commenced business as of June 1st, 2011, however, Mid American Natural Resources, our core business, has been in operation since the early 1980’s providing gas and electric supplies to hundreds of commercial and industrial customers. It has also marketed local PA and NY natural gas for scores of regional gas producers during that period.

Our attention is primarily focused on customers in western Pennsylvania, western New York, and northeastern Ohio. Our dedicated team of experienced employees is headquartered in Erie, PA.

Our gas marketing, gathering, and transportation operations, provide us with a strong foothold in the “mid-stream” segment of the energy universe. Mid American’s aim is to be recognized as the quality service provider in this segment, in the northwestern Appalachian basin.

I would like to thank you for giving us your trust in providing both your natural gas and electric needs. We try to do so in a reliable and predictable manner. It is worth pointing out in fact, that we have never “shorted” a customer on the agreed upon volumes of natural gas or electric power–even in the coldest of winters/hottest of summers, since MANR was founded in 1982. Quite a record.

This record doesn’t exist in a vacuum. It continues thanks to my dedicated team members who strive every day to ensure this unique record remains. Our reliability record is enhanced further, with the financial performance hallmark of always paying our producers on time, which we have repeatedly done since inception.

In order to facilitate such reliable gas supply service, we find ways to move the gas from the well head to the end user in the most efficient manner, sometimes via our affiliated pipeline system, EmKey Gathering.

Mid American and its affiliates continuously look to provide value added services. We have in certain areas, consolidated producers’ individual gathering systems, added compression and central drying of gas, all for the benefit of improving their “net back”.

For gas, our aim is to be the preferred energy marketer and gatherer of natural gas in the region. We want to be a provider of midstream services and build pipelines to the E&P (exploration and production) companies’ drilling operations. This would allow our producers to focus on drilling more profitable wells. Mid American Natural Resources will move the gas, process and market the products, and return a check for the value extracted. We want to be reliable, predictable, and provide market opportunities. Today, system has 11 key delivery points, and we are working to further increase this number. Multiple delivery points improve optionality on moving the gas to where it is priced the highest.

Looking to the future, if pipelines are down for service or capacity constraints, Mid American’s aim is to provide options to move gas to other pipelines. This will allow for more reliability on delivery, and provide less shut-ins of production. We have also been instrumental in supplying gas fired power plants. With access to a direct gas supply from the reliable local market, the very successful BPU power plant in Jamestown, NY is an example of our performance in this arena.

For Electricity: Mid American provides lower cost electric supply from a variety of generation suppliers in the PJM, and NYISO transmission regions to end users on the following utilities: PA: PENELEC. NY: National Grid. We have saved our customers millions of dollars by switching them to a lower priced, reliable alternative.

End users: If we can provide you with low cost gas and electricity, we have succeeded.

Producers: If we can market and process your natural gas, we have succeeded.

In short: We KNOW Gas and Electric. I look forward to updating you on understanding and measuring the success of our business plan.

Please do not hesitate to contact us to further discuss your energy needs.

Thank you for your interest in Mid American Natural Resources and the EmKey Energy family.
