EnCap Flatrock Midstream exceeds capital target, closes Fund II at $1.75B

EnCap Flatrock Midstream

EnCap Flatrock Midstream LLC announced the final closing of its second private equity fund, EnCap Flatrock Midstream Fund II LP, (EFM II) with total capital commitments of $1.75 billion. The fund exceeded its $1.25 billion target and was significantly oversubscribed to reach its hard cap thanks to strong support from the firm’s existing investors along with new commitments from a number of leading institutional investors, including public and private pension funds, insurance companies and university endowments and foundations.

EnCap Flatrock Midstream now has nearly $3 billion in investment commitments from a broad group of institutional investors and has made commitments to 10 portfolio companies across Funds I and II.  Fund II announced a commitment to Caiman Energy II, LLC earlier this month, as part of a $285 million total commitment from the firm. Caiman II will develop midstream infrastructure in the rich gas region of Ohio’s Utica Shale, including gathering pipelines and natural gas treating, processing and fractionation facilities. 

EFM II is EnCap Investments LP's 16th institutional fund and brings the aggregate total raised by EnCap Investments over its 25-year history to more than $13 billion. EnCap Flatrock Midstream has invested in 10 companies and has had two realization events, including the sale of Caiman Eastern Midstream LLC to Williams Partners for approximately $2.5 billion in April 2012. In addition to Caiman Energy II, current portfolio companies include Cardinal Midstream, Rangeland Energy, Caballo Energy, Nuevo Midstream, US Infrastructure and Lucid Energy.

Thompson & Knight served as legal counsel for the fund.

Duvernay - The Golden Canadian diluent play?

Tue, Apr 8, 2014

Growing Canadian production of oil sands bitumen requires diluent to blend it to pipeline flow specifications. The resulting demand for diluent exceeds local Canadian supply from plant condensate production – leading to imports from the US of more than 150 Mb/d in 2013 – a figure expected to grow to 460 Mb/d by 2018. That expectation for future import growth is based on the assumption that Canadian condensate supplies would remain relatively flat at about 140 Mb/d. But could the developing Duvernay gas shale play in Western Alberta turn those estimates on their head? .
