Qatar Investment Authority has acquired a $550 Million stake in Oryx Midstream Services from an affiliate of Stonepeak Infrastructure Partners. Oryx Midstream Services is the largest privately-held midstream crude operator in the Permian Basin.
"The significant investment and commitment from QIA alongside Stonepeak's strong operational and capital support will allow us to continue to grow our footprint in the Permian Basin and deliver the highest level of service to current and future customers. We are thrilled to lead Oryx in partnership with these world-class investors." said Brett Wiggs, CEO of Oryx.
"We believe that Oryx represents a strong midstream platform with tremendous growth potential, and we look forward to working with our new partners at Stonepeak. This acquisition is a further demonstration of QIA's strategy to increase the size of our US portfolio, and to invest more in major infrastructure projects." said Mansoor Al-Mahmoud, CEO of Qatar Investment Authority.
The Oryx system currently operates 500 miles of gathering pipelines and transports crude oil to market hubs for ultimate delivery to the Gulf Coast. Upon completion of the remaining 680 miles of gathering pipelines, which is currently under construction, Oryx's total transportation capacity will exceed 900,000 barrels per day.
Qatar Investment Authority has committed to invest in the development of Oryx alongside Stonepeak. While Qatar Investment Authority’s partnership and total investment in Oryx will be approximately $550 million, it plans to invest $45 billion across the US in the coming years.
