OKLAHOMA CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Kayne Energy Private Equity (“Kayne Energy PE”) and 89 Energy III, LLC (“89 Energy”) are pleased to announce the formation of Land Run Minerals V, LLC (“LRM V”), a royalties acquisition and management strategy launched from the 89 Energy platform.
In conjunction with the formation of LRM V, Kayne Energy PE and 89 Energy are excited to announce LRM V’s initial acquisition of a unique, large-scale, mature royalties asset located in the core fairway of the Mid-Continent’s STACK play.
- 4,500 Boe/d of net production
- 55,000 net royalty acres (normalized to 1/8th), primarily operated by Coterra Energy (CTRA), Devon Energy (DVN), Marathon Oil (MRO) and Ovintiv (OVV)
- 1,715 wells with an average net revenue interest of 1.6%
- 5 active rigs on the asset
- Assets mostly located in Kingfisher, Canadian and Blaine Counties, Oklahoma
“This initial acquisition leveraged our extensive experience and understanding of production and development activity in the Mid-Continent,” said John-Mark Beaver, Board Member of LRM V and President and CEO of 89 Energy. “In addition to the material production base, we acquired royalties in low breakeven development locations operated by large, public companies who are committed to active, long-term STACK development programs. Mid-Continent A&D markets are heavily discounting these factors, which is a dislocation we intend to exploit, as available. We are pleased to be of shared vision with Kayne Energy and appreciate their continued support.”
Ryan Sauer, Managing Director at Kayne Energy PE, said, “We are excited to add this mineral and royalty package to the Kayne Energy PE portfolio. This transaction represents a continuation of our successful relationship with the 89 Energy team and reflects our confidence in the team’s ability to identify and create value for our investors. This acquisition will serve as a cornerstone for future deals given the considerable amount of cash flow generated from the properties and inventory of high-quality development prospects.”
