Samson Lone Star, also known as Samson Lone Star Limited Partnership,
based in Longview, Texas as a subsidiary of Samson Energy Company of Tulsa, Okla., engages
in the exploration and production of natural gas properties. The original company, Samson Resources, founded in 1971 by
Charles Schusterman at Tulsa, Okla., grew through acquisitions that were incorporated into the Samson Investment Company in 1986
and sold in majority part in 2011 for 7.2 billion to the KKR Investment Group, with the remaining operations
continuing on as the Tulsa-based Schusterman Family Samson Energy Company whose property
interests are situated on the Gulf Coasts of Texas and Louisiana and the
deep water of the Gulf of Mexico.

The image of the facility shown here is the Samson Lone Star LP Douglass Central Tank Battery Conmingle #5400
consisting of at least eleven properties of the Sam B. Hayter Estate located 2.2 miles east of Douglass, Texas on approximately
5 acres and two levels on the south side of Texas State Hwy. #21. The general functions of the processing machinery located here, which
includes 3 sets of Catapillar engines and Ariel high speed compressor units, 3 large Hanover Cooling Fans, and various shapes and sizes of tanks,
pipes, transmission tubes, gages, devices, controls and monitors, is to receive, collect, hold, separate, refine, recombine, slow and increase the flow of material
received and transmit it downstream in the required transformed condition. Processing engines at this facility may include but are not limited to the following:
(1) A Glycol Dehydration System
that removes water vapor from the natural gas and oil; (2) A Gas Production Unit that delivers heating and separating
capabilities by the use of a firebox, an indirect heater and a separater; (3) A Blow-Case Well stream Pressure Booster Unit that boosts the
pressure in the well stream up to 500psig; (4) A Free Water Knockout System designed to separate oil, water and gas in an application through
retention time, density, and temperature of material in which water is removed and the oil or gas is recombined; (5) Slug Catchers
which protects downstream equipment by distributing the uneven flow of gas and material through expansion, slowing the velocity
and providing a settling area for liquids; (6) Coalescers/Filter Separators which coalesce lighter fluids and separate
heavier fluids and remove minute particles from the wellstream that might damage equipment;
(7) Test Separaters
that are used to accurately measure the rates of oil and gas;
(8) Amine Gas Treating System also known as a gas sweetening
system which removes carbon, hydrogen sulfide and other
contaminates allowing the product gas to be
ready for use or shipping.
