Crestwood to Merge With Inergy to Create $7 Billion Firm

As the boom in drilling continues to foster deal-making, Crestwood Midstream Partners L.P. agreed to buy control of a fellow gas pipeline operator, Inergy L.P., on Monday to form a company with a combined enterprise value of about $7 billion.

The complicated takeover is built on a series of cash-and-stock transactions, in which Crestwood Midstream and its affiliate, Crestwood Holdings, will take over Inergy and a related master limited partnership, Inergy Midstream L.P.
