    AEPB’s lead equity investor is The Energy & Minerals Group (EMG), with additional equity provided by First Reserve Corp., AEPB’s management team and others. Goldman, Sachs & Co., Tudor, Pickering, Holt & Co. and Citi acted as financial advisors to AEPB. Financing for the acquisition was provided by Goldman Sachs Bank USA.
