HOUSTON (ICIS)--A US natural gas industry veteran announced on Tuesday the launch of his new natural gas gathering and processing company based in Houston.

Chip Berthelot, founder of Laser Northeast, said Azure Midstream will work with producers to gather and process natural gas for customers throughout North America.

"We are excited to work with our customers to provide consumers with one of the cleanest forms of energy," said Berthelot, president of the new company. "Azure Midstream believes in working with clean natural gas to produce efficient and environmentally friendly energy for homes and businesses across the United States."

Berthelot, who has more than 30 years of natural gas project experience, developed Laser Northeast, the first gathering system to traverse Pennsylvania and New York in the Marcellus Shale region, as well as a number of other projects, according to an Azure Midstream press release.

Berthelot founded Laser in 2005, which was partially purchased by EROC in 2007 and then subsequently formed Laser Northeast Gathering, which was sold to Williams Partners in 2012.
