    Capstone Natural Resources acquires West Texas assets with equity from Lime Rock Partners

    Capstone Natural Resources Partners

    Capstone Natural Resources Partners LP, a Tulsa, Oklahoma-based oil and gas producing company, has acquired oil properties in Andrews and Gaines Counties in West Texas for $50 million.

    The $50 million acquisition of producing assets and associated acreage is from a private seller.  The transaction is being primarily financed with growth equity from Lime Rock Partners as part of its $100 million commitment to Capstone.

    Phil Terry, CEO of Capstone, noted, "Today is an important day in Capstone's young history. We believe that the newly acquired properties complement our existing asset base perfectly, adding production, cash flow, and low-risk drilling opportunities.  The acquisition also provides Capstone with greater scale to assist us in our continuing plan to create value in every part of our strategy: high-density drilling, operational optimization, new acreage leasing, and property acquisitions."

    Capstone is an exploration and production company focused on the Central Basin Platform of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico.  Formed in early 2012, the senior leadership of Capstone brought to the company's strategy a wealth of experience pursuing a similar model as senior officers of Arena Resources Inc., a publicly traded company that was sold to SandRidge Energy for $1.6 billion in 2010. Capstone is led by Phil Terry, CEO (former CEO of Arena Resources), and David Ricks, President and COO (former VP of Operations at Arena Resources Inc).
