Talara Strategy


Talara focuses on control-oriented North American upstream oil and gas opportunities in the middle market. We take an asset-focused approach to acquiring underexploited properties in geologically proven and low cost areas. We partner with operating teams who share our focus on applying modern technologies and capturing economies of scale through a combination of efficient development and production optimization.

Talara, in conjunction with our operating teams, sources oil and gas assets that are typically outside of the auction market. We believe that buying these “under the radar” properties helps to improve our risk-adjusted returns. The less efficient and underserved middle market also allows for more flexible and tailored deal structures around a specific asset development plan.

“Talara is a hands-on partner that helped us restructure, grow production and create value.”
– Mike Ford • CEO of Caza Oil & Gas

Talara is highly selective and makes relatively few investments per fund. This focused approach allows us to devote more time and attention to each of our portfolio companies. Our teams can rest assured that they will not be put in competition with each other. Importantly, Talara offers more than just sizeable and scalable capital commitments. Our strong technical experience as engineers, operators and business owners allows us to contribute valuable insight, connections and advice.
