Energy Services & Products
North America is experiencing a resurgence of domestic oil and gas production fueled by advancing techniques and technologies for extraction and processing. This resurgence is creating significant demand for products and services across all sectors of the oil and gas industry, including upstream, midstream and downstream.
We seek to partner with strong management teams of companies that are poised to take full advantage of this growing market opportunity. We are pursuing investments in service and product companies in each segment of the industry, including upstream, midstream and downstream, excluding E&P.
Our areas of interest include:
- Differentiated products and services
- Equipment and tool rental
- Consumable products
- Drilling and completion chemicals
