We expect the significant oil-in-place targets, with the application of our technology, to create equity value while delivering high returns.”

“With an eye to a stronger future, we have diligently looked at many candidates in the last seventeen months as a public company. We believe the combination of these two assets fits perfectly with our expertise and capital allocation strategy. These transactions provide the right blend of low decline rate, high margin and growth potential for TXO,” commented Brent Clum, the President of Business Operations and CFO. “We expect these assets to be accretive on every relevant measure, but most importantly to cash flow and distributions. It’s a natural evolution to creating equity value.”
