The Only Constant Is…

If you missed his quote this morning, Halliburton’s CEO predicted “For the first time in a long time, we will see a buyer looking for a barrel of oil, as opposed to a barrel of oil looking for a buyer.” Just one more reminder that none of us choose a career in the oil and gas industry because nothing much ever happens.

Energy Transfer Grows More Tentacles

Energy Transfer Grows More Tentacles

Texas and Okla., are back in the headlines this morning but it’s not the frigid weather lifting eyebrows this time. Reese Energy Consulting is following breaking news from Dallas-based pipeline behemoth Energy Transfer, which has announced it will acquire Okla. City-based Enable Midstream in an all-equity deal valued at 7.2 billion. The merger includes 14,000 miles of natural gas, crude, condensate and produced water gathering pipe; 15 major processing plants; 10,000 miles of intrastate and interstate natural gas pipelines; and 7 gas storage facilities across Okla., Texas, La., Mo., and into Ill. The combined company strengthens Energy Transfer’s already sizeable NGLs system with added gathering and processing assets in Okla.’s Anadarko Basin and connectivity to its Gulf Coast fractionation complex. Other perks include Enable’s gas gathering and processing assets in the Arkoma Basin across Okla., and Ark., and the Haynesville in La., and Texas. We now return you to your regular weather programming.


Energy Transfer

Energy Transfer is one of the largest and most diversified midstream energy companies in the country with approximately 90,000 miles of pipelines traversing 38 states transporting the oil and gas products that make our lives possible.

The Money Backers:  EIV Capital

The Money Backers: EIV Capital

In RMR’s continuing series The Money Backers, we give readers a glimpse of who’s who and who owns what in energy’s private equity world.  From the largest to the smallest to the newest, we look especially at those firms making hay in the midstream industry to provide the capital infusion required to give growth projects liftoff.

Houston-based EIV Capital hedges its investment bets on energy startups with a solid track record of successfully managing previous ventures during industry upturns and downturns. This small private-equity firm focuses predominantly on players in the midstream sector with investments between $20-$80 million.

EIV Capital

EIV Capital is a private equity firm based in Houston, Texas, specializing in the energy industry.  EIV focuses on the midstream and downstream segments of the market. EIV Capital is an investor-centric private equity firm, with diverse team experience. We provide valuable, practical solutions and advice based on our operational and financial experience and aim to be a true partner to all stakeholders.

Here’s a look at EIV’s current midstream portfolio:

  • Based in Dallas, Canes Midstream is EIV’s most recent newcomer. Formed in late 2019, Canes looks to acquire oil and gas infrastructure and develop greenfield midstream projects in high-performing basins.
  • Formed in April 2019, Ga.-based Summit Terminaling has its eye on constructing and operating bulk liquid terminal storage in underserved areas across the U.S.
  • EIV Capital also birthed Woodland Midstream II in 2019. Calling The Woodlands, Texas, home, this second iteration targets opportunities in the Permian and Arkoma basins and the Western Gulf Coast and ARK-LA-TEX areas. The company acquired last October the James Lake System, which serves producers in the Permian. Assets include a fully integrated sour gas gathering, treating, and processing system with 230 miles of pipeline, 110 MMCFD of processing capacity, and 35,000 HP of owned compression.
  • With initial funding of $75 million in 2018, Houston-based Bayou Midstream operates a crude oil gathering system in the Bakken with a strategy to build or acquire additional assets in both the Williston and Powder River basins.
  • Back in 2016, EIV committed $100 million in equity financing to Houston-based startup H2O Midstream. One year later, H2O acquired Encana’s produced water infrastructure in the Permian with assets that included more than 100 miles of interconnected pipelines and five saltwater disposal wells with 80,000 BPD of disposal capacity. H2O in 2019 then picked up Sabalo Energy’s water system, which was already connected to Ecana’s, bringing combined disposal capacity in the Midland and Delaware to 560,000 BPD. EIV has since increased its financial backing to enable H2O Midstream’s further growth in the Permian, where the company owns and operates the first third-party, truckless produced water hub.
