    Ridgemont Equity Partners, Post Oak Energy Capital

    Ridgemont Equity Partners and Post Oak Energy Capital have committed $100 million to the management team of Titan River Energy LLC. Titan River’s management team will be co-investing alongside Ridgemont and Post Oak. No other financial terms of the transaction were disclosed.

The management team has a proven track record with extensive experience in the geologic assessment, drilling and completion of over 400 horizontal wells in several major shale plays, with a recent focus on the Eagle Ford Shale.

    “The Titan River team is privileged to have access to the financial support and industry knowledge of Ridgemont and Post Oak,” said Chip Simmons, CEO of Titan River. “I also feel fortunate to be partnered with such a high caliber management team. We are anxious to pursue our business model of converting acreage into reserves via drilling joint ventures, farm-ins and organic leasing opportunities.”
