EnCap Creates Value by Staying Ahead of Changing O&G Markets

E. Murphy Markham of EnCap Investments L.P. joined Weaver, East West Bank and Seaport Global for April’s Energy Leadership Series Breakfast in Fort Worth to discuss how private equity funding is changing given the oscillations of commodity prices, limited new capital funding from public markets, and the changing landscape for early entry into new plays.

Founded in 1988, EnCap is a leading provider of growth capital to the upstream and midstream sectors of the U.S. oil and gas industry. They have approximately 65 portfolio companies operating across the country, and have provided growth capital to more than 250 oil and gas companies.

Markham discussed EnCap’s strategy as the market continues to change and shared the four main ways that they create value in the current environment:

  • Partnering with some of the best management teams in the oil and gas business
  • Attaining investment opportunities with what they anticipate will be superior economic outcomes
  • Managing risk by performing thorough assessments and continually monitoring results
  • Amassing an asset base that is attractive to the buying universe

Our Energy Leadership Series focuses on providing industry insights, as well as addressing trends and challenges in an engaging, open discussion format.
