HOUSTON — (BUSINESS WIRE) — EIV Capital, LLC (“EIV”), an energy focused private equity firm, and ARM Energy Holdings, LLC (“ARM”), a premier producer services firm providing innovative solutions across the energy value chain, today announced a partnership to establish ARM Resource Partners, LLC (“ARM Resources”), an upstream joint venture that will focus on making certain investments in various non-operating working interests, producing and non-producing mineral interests, royalty interests and other passive investments within the United States.
ARM Resources will be led by Claire Harvey, an industry and investment veteran, who most recently founded Gryphon Oil and Gas, a Blackstone-sponsored company focused on acquiring non-operated oil and gas interests in the Permian Basin. Mrs. Harvey commented, “I am excited to lead the ARM Resources team as we partner with EIV to build a best-in-class upstream investment platform focused on acquiring passive oil and gas interests across the Lower 48. The combination of EIV’s investment expertise and backing, along with ARM’s decades-long, proven track record of providing outstanding advice and service to its clients makes this venture advantageous for both ARM’s current client base and new producers.”
Greg Davis, EIV Partner, said, “We are grateful to announce the formation of ARM Resources and our new partnership with Claire Harvey and ARM. This strategic combination of talented leadership creates an ideal platform to access upstream opportunities during, what EIV views as, a compelling time to invest. We look forward to helping producers meet their strategic needs and working collectively to navigate challenging times.”
Zach Lee, Chief Executive Officer of ARM, said “We are elated to partner with EIV on this important venture, especially during this critical time in our industry. We feel strongly that the risk-reward paradigm in upstream oil and gas has never been better and we are confident we can provide win-win solutions for our producer partners and for ARM Resources.
