Rangeland IV will continue to pursue midstream acquisitions and development opportunities in both conventional and unconventional resource plays across the U.S. and Canada, as well as new opportunities in decarbonized infrastructure.
Rangeland IV will be led by President and Chief Executive Officer Chris Keene, Managing Partner and Chief Financial Officer Craig Peus, Managing Partner and Chief Operating Officer Josh Thomas, and Managing Partner and Chief Commercial Officer Orin Atkins. The company will also maintain Rangeland’s established presence in Canada via Rangeland Midstream Canada, Ltd., Rangeland’s Calgary-based subsidiary led by President and Chief Commercial Officer Briton Speer. Rangeland’s leadership team has extensive midstream experience, having successfully developed and operated midstream infrastructure servicing producers, marketers, and refiners in multiple basins and resource plays across North America.
“We are very excited to launch Rangeland IV and continue our long-term partnership with EnCap Flatrock Midstream,” said Chris Keene, CEO of Rangeland Energy. “Rangeland IV will be focused on acquiring assets and developing projects that accommodate an ever-increasing global demand for traditional energy commodities while simultaneously assessing new opportunities in an evolving energy landscape.”
“Chris and his impressive team at Rangeland have created a portfolio of extremely successful, very complex midstream projects over the past 13 years,” said EnCap Flatrock Midstream Managing Partner and Chief Operating Officer Morriss Hurt, a member of the Rangeland board of directors. “We have full confidence that the Rangeland IV team will continue to be successful and we are honored to have the opportunity to partner with them again.”
The $300 million commitment is the fourth EnCap Flatrock growth equity commitment to Rangeland companies, bringing the total to $900 million since Rangeland’s formation in 2009.
