American Energy Partners announced on Monday that amid its plans of entering into pipeline partnerships, acquiring oil-producing assets, and possible initial public offerings, the company is still allocating millions of dollars’ worth of funding to purchase mineral rights in some of the country’s most prolific oil-producing regions, Fuelfix reported on Tuesday, December 2.
The company, which is owned by former Chesapeake CEO Aubrey McClendon, said it will set aside $500 million from equity commitments to buy 28,000 net mineral acres and secure 29,000 acres in royalty interests. Among the formations American Energy Partners plans to invest in is the Permian Basin, one of the country’s richest oilfields located in West Texas.
