On January 29, 2016, Houston-based Haymaker Resources closed on the
acquisition of mineral and royalty interests from certain affiliates of
Oklahoma City-based Chesapeake Energy Corporation. The acquisition
includes producing and non-producing mineral and royalty interests
associated with over 8,500 wells across 24 states and 324 counties. The
majority of production comes from the Mid-Continent, Haynesville, and
Appalachia regions. Final closing price is subject to post-closing
Haymaker CEO Karl Brensike said, “In the current market environment,
operators are focusing on their core assets more than ever before. I
think everyone can agree that there is nothing more non-core to an
operator than owning non-operated royalty interests. This was a complex
transaction, involving numerous business units formed over Chesapeake’s
30 years as a very active acquirer of premier oil and gas assets. I am
proud of our team, which is uniquely capable of executing these types of
transactions. We are fortunate to have a capital structure that allows
us to continue acquiring aggressively throughout the current commodity
DLA Piper advised Haymaker on the transaction.
Since being formed in 2013, the Haymaker team has closed over 400
acquisitions and owns mineral and royalty interests in over 20,000 wells
across the United States. Haymaker is funded by affiliates of Kayne
Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P. and Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. L.P.
