We have engaged in private energy investing since 1992. With over $8 billion in capital raised, we manage a series of investment partnerships dedicated to private equity financings for high-growth exploration and production and midstream companies. Our investment philosophy is to provide high-quality, return-driven management teams with the growth capital necessary to execute on clearly-defined business plans that can generate value across diverse commodity price environments. With an unmatched level of in-house technical and capital markets expertise, we are in a position to deliver a unique, value-added working partnership to each of our portfolio companies.
We invest principally in privately-issued common and preferred securities of primarily private companies. Our target investment size is generally $50 million to $200 million (see investment criteria), but we can arrange larger financings through our extensive network of co-investors. We can hold majority or minority stakes, and typically have significant board representation on our portfolio companies.
