Anadarko Petroleum Corporation is partnering with New York-based private equity firm KKR & Co. in a bid to develop its acreage across East Texas, Bloomberg reported on October 29.
An investment of $442 million has been provided by the KKR & Co. to fund the drilling of more than 500 oil and gas wells in the Eaglebine field, an oil- and gas-rich region northeast of Houston. A University of Houston lecturer on energy economics said the joint venture will help Anadarko expedite oil and gas drilling activities and secure its leased lands without having to lose much of its own funds.
An ever-increasing volume of investment in oil and gas sector means a robust public and business confidence in the industry. If you are planning to take part in the oil and gas boom in Texas by selling your mineral rights, consult with a broker at The Mineral Auction by calling (512) 698-2802 today.
