To support the build-out of infrastructure for the Producer and other third parties, EVX and Five Point Energy LLC (“Five Point”) today announced the formation and funding of EVX Midstream Partners II (“EVX II”) from Five Point Energy Fund II L.P., bringing EVX’s total committed capital to more than $450 million.

Under the Agreements, EVX has the exclusive right to construct produced water gathering and disposal infrastructure for the Producer across a 6 million acre Area of Mutual Interest (“AMI”) in the Central Eagle Ford and Karnes Trough.

EVX II also announced that it has acquired the assets of 5 Star OFS, LLC (“5 Star”) through its subsidiary EVX Eagle Ford Partners, LLC.

The 5 Star assets include seven saltwater disposal facilities and, when combined with EVX’s existing assets, create an expansive footprint that extends throughout the core of the Eagle Ford.

EVX I and II president and CEO Herb Chambers IV said: “Our team is diligently working to create a next generation midstream company with long-term agreements that afford EVX the ability to complete decades worth of expansion projects for not only produced water (gathering, recycling and disposal) but also crude oil throughout the Eagle Ford.

“Our multi-commodity focus continues to create substantial value for our producer customers, Five Point and their investors.

“We are pleased to continue our partnership with Five Point Energy and look forward to utilizing their operational and financial resources to further expand and differentiate our midstream platform.”

Five Point COO and managing partner Matt Morrow said: “We are pleased to continue our partnership with EVX through the formation and funding of EVX Midstream Partners II.  The EVX platform is led by a first-class team of executives with an extensive track record of success and strong relationships throughout the upstream sector. Five Point’s investment strategy centers on aligning ourselves with partners like EVX for the long term.”

Five Point CEO and managing partner David Capobianco said: “Current and future demand for infrastructure is rapidly expanding, particularly as upstream operators focus their capex on drilling and development rather than building midstream assets.

“Whether it is in the Permian, Eagle Ford or other high growth basins, Five Point is optimally positioned to provide midstream solutions for active producers, including the development of crude oil, natural gas, produced water gathering, processing, treating and transportation assets.

“Since our inception, Five Point has been focused on buying and building midstream assets and growing them into world-class companies in partnership with industry leading executives.”
