“Thompson & Knight Guides $233M Grey Rock Energy Fund”
Energy-focused Grey Rock Energy Partners on Tuesday said its latest fund snagged $232.5 million in commitments as it looks to add more oil and gas assets to a growing portfolio, with Thompson & Knight LLP guiding the Dallas-based private equity firm.
…Thompson & Knight’s involvement with Grey Rock III is representative of the work it has undertaken recently in energy investment.
For example, the firm in February guided Double Eagle Energy Holdings III LLC in securing $1 billion in equity commitments, anchored by a contribution from funds managed by Apollo Global Management LLC. Double Eagle at the time said the funds would go toward acquisition and development in the Permian Basin.
Thompson & Knight in March also represented Natural Gas Partners and Pearl Energy Investments as they provided a $100 million initial equity commitment to newly founded independent midstream company Mettle Midstream Partners LLC.
Grey Rock is represented by a Thompson & Knight LLP team including Jeremiah M. Mayfield, Tony Johnston, James W. McKellar and Roger D. Aksamit.
