On 5 October, 2021 Rattler Midstream LP (Rattler), a subsidiary of Diamondback Energy, Inc. (Diamondback), and a private affiliate of an investment fund, completed an acquisition of a majority interest in a Midland Basin gas gathering and processing company from West Texas Gas, Inc. and its affiliates through a joint venture.
Rattler invested approximately US$104 million in cash to acquire a minority interest in the joint venture. The joint venture’s assets primarily consist of an interconnected gas gathering system and six major gas processing plants servicing the Midland Basin with 925 million ft3/d of total processing capacity with additional gas gathering and processing expansions planned.
“This deal highlights the strategic relationship between Diamondback and Rattler as this is the sixth significant joint venture with Diamondback as a major customer in which Rattler has participated. With Diamondback deploying a majority of its development capital in the Northern Midland Basin, expanded gas gathering and processing capacity and an enhanced relationship with a crucial midstream partner with strong financial backing will support Diamondback’s upstream development. For Rattler, the joint venture is an attractive opportunity to invest in a growing gas gathering and processing system in the core of the Midland Basin,” stated Travis Stice, Chief Executive Officer of Rattler’s General Partner.
