Riverstone formed Three Rivers III in April 2015 to pursue acquisition, exploitation and development opportunities in the Permian Basin of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico, following successful partnerships with the same team in Three Rivers Operating Company I and Three Rivers Operating Company II. Shortly after formation, Three Rivers III assembled a significant contiguous acreage position in the core of the Delaware Basin through several acquisitions in 2015 and 2016. The company subsequently leased offset acreage, developed midstream oil and gas infrastructure and initiated a drilling programme to delineate its approximately 57,000 net acre position. Three Rivers III was producing in excess of 10,000 boepd net as of January 2018.

Today, Riverstone announces an agreement has been reached to sell Three Rivers III’s upstream assets for an undisclosed cash consideration. This follows an acreage gas dedication agreement executed in December for additional undisclosed consideration.

Upon closing of these transactions, REL will realise gross cash proceeds of approximately $205 million, representing a gross multiple of invested capital of 2.2x on the Company’s investment of $94 million and a gross IRR of 49%. This represents a gross profit of $111 million, which will be subject to taxes and a performance fee upon closing of the sale, which is expected to occur in April 2018 and is subject to customary closing conditions.

The company will release its 2017 annual results, including the updated NAV as at 31 December 2017, on 28 February 2018.
