Post Oak Energy Capital Hits $600M Hard Cap On Fourth Fund

Nov 13 2017 | 5:17pm ET

Energy specialist Post Oak Energy Capital has raised $600 million in capital commitments for its fourth buyout fund, closing the new vehicle at its hard cap.

Like its predecessors, Post Oak Energy Partners IV will focus on making equity investments in North American oil and gas companies, oilfield services and related infrastructure, the company said in a statement. Investments are aimed at growth capital, development acceleration, acquisitions and recapitalizations.

Post Oak expects to begin investing capital from the fourth fund in early 2018, the company added. It has invested in 25 companies since forming Fund I in late 2011, primarily focused on upstream oil and gas investments, with two oilfield services and two midstream investments. The company’s last two funds, closed in May 2016 and February 2014, respectively, also raised $600 million apiece. 

Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Houston, Post Oak Energy pursues private investments primarily in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry in North America and, to a lesser extent, in oilfield service and related infrastructure.
