Oklahoma energy company Enable Midstream names chief financial officer [The Oklahoman, Oklahoma City :: ]
(Daily Oklahoman (Oklahoma City) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) March 20--Enable Midstream Partners LP has chosen a WPX Energy executive to be its chief financial officer.
Rodney J. Sailor will join the Oklahoma City-based partnership on April 1 as executive vice president and CFO. Sailor, 55, currently is senior vice president and CFO of WPX Energy, a Tulsa-based oil and natural gas producer.
"I'm pleased to announce Rod's addition to our senior leadership team," Enable CEO Lynn Bourdon said. "His depth and breadth of financial, strategic and industry-related experience combined with his previous experience with master limited partnerships and the initial public offering process are crucial to our transition to a stand-alone, publicly traded company."
Sailor, a Tennessee native who earned a bachelor's degree in accounting from Oklahoma State University, worked for the Williams Cos. Inc. for 27 years before moving to WPX.
He was involved in Williams' formation of two master limited partnerships, Williams Partners and Williams Pipeline Partners.
WPX has named J. Kevin Vann to replace Sailor on an interim basis. Vann currently is the company's vice president, controller and chief accounting officer.
Enable was formed in May 2013 when OGE Energy Corp.'s Enogex midstream division combined with the interstate pipeline assets of Houston-based CenterPoint Energy Inc.
Many of its leadership assignments were announced in July, although Bourdon did not join Enable until Feb. 1.
Enable, which has about 1,700 employees, maintains offices in Oklahoma City and Houston.
It has more than 7,800 miles of interstate pipelines and 2,300 miles of intrastate pipelines, as well as eight storage facilities and 11 processing plants.
