Strategy

Talara’s private equity team focuses on North American oil and gas E&P opportunities in the middle market. Our thesis-driven, asset-focused approach and use of the latest technologies to improve efficiencies and lower costs provide attractive investment opportunities.

Talara seeks to partner with proven management teams that have localized expertise to develop unique oil and natural gas assets. Together, we appropriately manage capital at risk while striving for continual asset efficiencies and identifying new resource opportunities.

As the E&P industry shifts from the land acquisition phase towards the development phase, Talara sees a compelling need for private investment focused on smaller companies. The less efficient and underserved middle market allows for greater flexibility of deal structure, providing for more optimally tailored investments around a specific asset development plan and greater alignment of incentives.

Talara proprietarily sources oil and gas assets that are typically outside of the auction market.  With a thesis-driven asset-first approach to identifying investments, Talara targets already delineated, low cost assets where the latest technology can be applied to increase productivity and efficiencies.  We work collaboratively with best-in-class management teams with localized operating expertise and a track record of operating success who share our data centric approach to developing oil and gas properties.  We focus on full-cycle returns, not just single-well economics, during a typical 5-year field development plan.
