US-based Tall Oak Midstream has secured a $100m equity commitment from private equity firm EnCap Flatrock Midstream.

With an initial emphasis on the mid-continent region of the US, Tall Oak will pursue midstream opportunities in emerging resource plays across North America.

Tall Oak Midstream president and CEO Ryan Lewellyn said the company had a great response from the Oklahoma oil and gas community.

"One of the strengths of our team is in the unique skill set each one of us brings to Tall Oak. We have diverse and complementary experience in both the midstream and upstream sectors, and that gives us a good understanding of our customers’ needs," Lewellyn added.

Tall Oak is engaged in the gas gathering, compression, treating and processing, crude oil gathering and transportation, condensate and water handling and product marketing solutions.
