EagleClaw Midstream to buy rival Caprock for about $950 million
(Reuters) - Blackstone-backed pipeline company EagleClaw Midstream Ventures LLC said it would buy rival Caprock Midstream Holdings for about $950 million, strengthening its presence in the oil-rich Permian Basin.
A surge in oil and gas production in the Permian basin of west Texas and New Mexico has outstripped transport capacity and has encouraged midstream companies to invest in the region.
EagleClaw, which said it is the largest privately held midstream operator in the Permian’s Delaware Basin in west Texas, will buy Caprock from Dallas-based private equity firm Energy Spectrum Capital and Caprock Midstream Management.
Caprock will be renamed EagleClaw Midstream II and will operate as a sister entity to EagleClaw after the deal closes, expected in 2018.
Jefferies LLC is the financial adviser to Blackstone and EagleClaw, while Evercore and Barclays advised Caprock and Energy Spectrum.
EagleClaw Midstream is a portfolio company of Blackstone Energy Partners, Blackstone’s energy-focused private equity business.

A New Approach to Large Medium Voltage Drives
By attending this webinar, you will learn the benefits of using a single-channel, Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) solution for applications above 9,000Hp with operating voltages from 11kV to 13.8kV. We will explore a VFD solution that does not require a step-up output transformer but still provides maximum control, environmental and motor flexibility to the end user. We will also discuss how to provide maximum reliability using power cell redundancy and the removal of water cooled components. The topics covered in the webinar include:
•A brief review of the multi-cell M2C topology
•A review of the physical implementation and the advantages it offers to the end user
•A presentation of the various implementations and ratings available for use on typical pump, compressor and fan applications.
