Chisholm Energy expands acreage position in New Mexico's Delaware basin


FORT WORTH, Texas -- Chisholm Energy Holdings, LLC, a start-up oil and gas company backed by Warburg Pincus, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to acquire undeveloped acreage from Resource Rock Exploration, LLC, an oil and gas company backed by Kayne Anderson Energy Funds. The acreage, which contains multiple horizontal reservoir targets in the Bone Spring and Wolfcamp Formations, is located in Eddy County in New Mexico's Delaware basin. The transaction is expected to close in January 2018. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

The newly acquired asset complements Chisholm’s existing position and upon closing of the transaction, Chisholm will hold over 30,000 net acres in the New Mexico Delaware basin. In May 2017, Chisholm closed on its first asset acquisition of acreage located in Eddy and Lea Counties from a private seller. The Company is currently running three drilling rigs and is producing approximately 4,000 boed.

Chisholm was formed in 2016 and is backed by a $500-million line-of-equity commitment from Warburg Pincus, a global private equity firm focused on growth investing.
