Peak 10 Energy Announces Platform Launch and Initial Acquisition Closing
HOUSTON, August 30, 2023 – Peak 10 Energy (“Peak 10”) today announced its launch as an oil and gas investment platform focused on acquiring long-life oil and gas assets throughout the continental United States. Peak 10’s asset base consists of non-operated oil and gas properties in Reeves, Fisher, Scurry, Gaines, Dawson and Andrews Counties, including over 100 producing wells and a multi-year drilling program of tier 1 undeveloped drilling opportunities.
Building on a portfolio of long-life Permian Basin assets, Peak 10’s inaugural platform acquisition is its purchase of non-operated upstream oil and gas and associated water handling and recycling assets in the Eastern Shelf of the Permian Basin in Fisher and Scurry Counties, Texas, which closed with a private seller on August 23, 2023.
“The formation of Peak 10 and the closing of the Eastern Shelf transaction represent transformational moments in our ability to create scale by consolidating dislocated oil and gas assets,” noted Peak 10 Chief Executive Officer Mark Paull. “We look forward to additional opportunities to provide a differentiated and value-added solution to the market.”
Peak 10’s capitalization consists of (i) cash, (ii) contributed assets and (iii) future capital commitments from Legacy Star Capital Partners, a Texas-based asset management firm, as well as (iv) debt financing from Prudential Private Capital, Prudential Energy Capital Partners, LP., and Production Lending, LLC, which in aggregate are estimated to exceed $500 million in balance sheet resources.
Legacy Star and Peak 10 are advised by a team at Baker Botts LLP led by Clay Brett as well as Robert Dougherty and Jerimiah Mayfield at Holland and Knight.
