Gotta Whole Lotta Love

Gotta Whole Lotta Love

 If anything, 2020 has proven that the oil and gas industry still has a whole lotta life left for the foreseeable future. Times are uncertain, for certain. But like they say on the big screen, there’s no crying in baseball. Which aptly describes our producer and midstream clients who not only look for every advantage they can get right now but also are preparing for their energy business future. For some, that means immediate measures to identify and plug holes where revenues go lost, secure premium markets for gas sales, and take an electron microscope to contracts and agreements in need of renegotiation to boost bottom lines. But it also means finding and acting on new and emerging opportunities in a period of consolidation and industry evolution we see happening every day. Aside from the number of audits and due diligence projects REC performs throughout the year, we’re also at work on potential client A&Ds and producer services, facilitating design and commissioning of a new high-pressure gas line in the Mid-Continent, reporting on flared gas volumes, and exploring all the possibilities hydrogen offers as a fuel of the future.

Another Big Move in Oklahoma Energy

Another Big Move in Oklahoma Energy

 The bid process has wrapped up and the winner announced for Okla. City-based Chesapeake Energy’s Mid-Continent assets, writing a new—some might say brighter—chapter to the E&P’s storied history following its Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April. Okla., neighbor Tapstone Energy sealed the winning deal for $130.5 million after its initial “Stalking Horse” offer of $85 million. More than 100 companies tossed their hats in the ring for a prize that includes about 736,000 acres in the Anadarko Basin producing an average 14,000 BOEPD. Upon filing for Chapter 11, Chesapeake carried a debt load of around $9 billion, which the company is working to slash with the goal to emerge from bankruptcy late next year. Tapstone, coincidentally, completed a financial restructuring of its own also in April and raised $50 million in an out-of-court reset to reduce debt and fuel its ability to pursue near-term acquisitions and potential mergers. Looks like it’s found one.

 

Tapstone Energy

Tapstone Energy is a growth-oriented, independent oil and natural gas company focused on the development and production of oil, natural gas, and NGLs in the Anadarko Basin in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas, while also maintaining a disciplined financial strategy.

A Contango Fandango?

A Contango Fandango?

In its figurative term, “fandango” is a synonym to describe a “brilliant exploit.” For Houston-based Contango Oil and Gas, that may well sum up its rationale to scoop up Tulsa-based Mid-Con Energy in an all stock merger valued at $400 million. Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest news from Contango, which will assume ownership of Mid-Con’s assets in Okla., and Wyo., after replacing Mid-Con as the operator of those assets in July. The deal is expected to close by early 2021, and pairs an E&P with a stated goal of “consolidating a sector that is in dire need of it” with another that offers high-value, low-decline oil and gas properties but has financially struggled. Mid-Con issued a “going concern” in August and posted an $11.9 million loss in 2Q. Contango also has reported a private-equity capital raise of $39.7 million from the sale of 26,451,988 shares of common stock to fund the Mid-Con acquisition. The company says it will relocate its headquarters to the DFW area. Contango’s onshore operations include 7,719 net acres primarily in Texas and Okla.

 

Contango Oil and Gas

Contango Oil & Gas Company is a Houston, Texas based, independent oil and natural gas company whose business is to maximize production and cash flow from its offshore properties in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico and onshore properties in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Wyoming and, when determined appropriate, to use that cash flow to explore, develop, and increase production from its existing properties, to acquire additional PDP-heavy crude oil and natural gas properties or to pay down debt.

Targa Announces Open Season; Excelerate Expands LNG Fleet

Targa Announces Open Season; Excelerate Expands LNG Fleet

RMR features the latest high-point news to keep you to up to date with midstream activities happening in the basins and shale plays that matter to you most.

Targa Launches Open Season on Proposed NGL Interconnection

With more than 2,000 miles of NGLs pipelines, Houston-based Targa Resources now has its eye on building a new interconnection to link upstream pipeline facilities in the Anadarko Basin at Kingfisher, Okla., to the company’s fractionation facilities at the Mont Belvieu, Texas, NGL hub.

Targa has announced an open season from July 1-31 to gauge shipper interest on a proposed interconnection in Kingfisher where, following construction of a new 110-mile extension of the company’s Grand Prix NGL pipeline, will connect supplies to Williams’ Bluestem Pipeline. The Bluestem originates from Williams’ fractionator in Conway, Kan., and the terminus of Overland Pass Pipeline to Targa’s Grand Prix. Commercial service on the 188-mile Bluestem and the Grand Prix extension is expected in 1Q 2021.

Excelerate Adds 10th LNG Tanker to FSRU Fleet

While the nation’s LNG industry has largely fixated on the development of multi-billion-dollar export terminals that takes years to construct, Excelerate Energy has taken a whole different direction. And by “whole different,” we mean a complete 180-degree turn that’s put this company on the global map.

 Headquartered in The Woodlands, Texas, Excelerate puts its money on imports, converting LNG to natural gas aboard its fleet of floating storage regasification units (FSRUs). From the offshore vessel, gas flows to shore by way of an underwater pipeline where it’s distributed to power plants and homes. Excelerate owns import LNG terminals from Boston to Bangladesh and has secured the title of operating the largest fleet of FSRUs in the world, in addition to pioneering ship-to-ship transfer of LNG. Excelerate now has added a 10th FSRU to its fleet—the Excelerate Sequoia—which can store 173,400 cubic meters of LNG and act as an offshore import terminal to deliver natural gas to communities and nations near and far.
