EnCap Investments L.P. and the Double Eagle family of companies' management team ("Double Eagle") announced that they have formed Double Eagle Energy Holdings IV, LLC ("Double Eagle IV") and Tumbleweed Royalty IV, LLC ("Tumbleweed IV"). Apollo Natural Resource Funds ("Apollo"), Magnetar Capital ("Magnetar"), and other key institutional partners have also made minority investments in the new firms. Double Eagle IV, based in Fort Worth, Texas, will largely invest in Permian Basin oil and gas holdings, while Tumbleweed IV will focus on royalty and mineral investments throughout the Permian Basin. Double Eagle IV was formed by the same management team that successfully led its predecessor companies, with John Sellers and Cody Campbell continuing to serve as Co-Chief Executive Officers. Double Eagle has been one of the largest independent acquirers of oil and gas leasehold interests across Texas, the Rockies, and the Mid-Continent.

Formation of this new company follows the recent successful sale of Double Eagle III Midco 2 LLC (“Double Eagle III”), wholly owned by DoublePoint Energy, LLC (“DoublePoint”) to Pioneer Natural Resources Company (NYSE: PXD) for approximately $6.4 billion. Double Eagle IV will pursue a similar strategy that led to the success of the predecessor companies, but on a considerably larger scale and with a more substantial upfront commitment from funds managed by EnCap, along with Apollo, Magnetar, and the Double Eagle management team.

Cody Campbell and John Sellers, Co-Chief Executive Officers of Double Eagle, commented, “We are excited about this new partnership with EnCap and are thrilled to do business with a group of people who have been longtime personal friends. Pairing EnCap with our longtime investors, Apollo and Magnetar, along with several large strategic institutions and our own personal capital, provides us with a unique strategic advantage. Together with the financial strength of our partnership, our track record of success, and our world-class operating team, we can confidently and aggressively pursue very large acquisitions while continuing to organically assemble smaller opportunities and undertake an ambitious development program.”

Gary Petersen, Founder of EnCap Investments, said, “I have known Cody and John for many years and our team at EnCap has long admired their approach to business.” Kyle Kafka, Partner of EnCap Investments, added, “The Double Eagle team brings unique relationships and a proven track record of success in the industry. We are excited to partner with John, Cody and the entire management team and look forward to building a substantial business together.”
