ELITE MIDSTREAM SERVICES INC.

WINTER 2016

[ BY B OB RA KOW ]

Keith Keane founded Elite Midstream
Services Inc. three years ago to meet
a need that he identified in the oil and
gas industry. "There were only a limited
number of companies that provided hot
tapping services," Keane recalls. "It led
me to believe that there was an opportunity for more competition."
Keane, who spent 40 years working
in the utilities and pipeline industries,
provided that competition when he
started Elite Midstream Services.
"Our home base is right in the middle of the Marcellus and Utica Shale
region," he says.
The dearth of companies willing to
offer hot tapping services is related
to the risk involved in the high-risk
work, Keane says. "The liability in hot
tapping is tremendous," he explains.
"It's done live, and you have to have a

lot of experience. Oil and gas companies seek technicians with a plethora
of knowledge and experience because
of the inherent dangers associated with
the work."
Elite Midstream Services brings
plenty of knowledge, experience and
familiarity to the work it performs,
Keane says.
The company has more than 100
years of combined experience among
its employees, and several bring at least
15 years of background in hot tapping,
engineering, welding and pipe laying to
the job, he says.

A GROWING FOOTPRINT
Elite Midstream Inc. built its client base close to home in Southwest
Pennsylvania near Cuddy, but expansion began quickly during the first
year. Today, the company provides hot

tapping and numerous related services
in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia,
North Dakota and Indiana. It also has
also established footprints in Texas,
Louisiana, Puerto Rico and Maryland.
"We continue to grow," Keane says.
"Our customers are located throughout North America. We travel well.
A client's first impression is critical,
leading us to arrive at a jobsite fully
prepared to immediately begin the
work on the project.
"We're set with our equipment and
transportation group," Keane notes.
"We work diligently to maintain a
