Matador Acquires Additional Land in Delaware from Advance Energy for $1.6 Billion05/08/2023
Matador Resources Co. is making a big move in the oil and gas industry by acquiring Advance Energy Partners Holdings LLC, a major player in the northern Delaware Basin. The acquisition, which comes with a hefty price tag of at least $1.6 billion in cash, includes valuable assets in Lea County, N.M., and Ward County, Texas, as well as key midstream infrastructure.
The newly acquired 18,500 net acres, with 99% held by production, are strategically located in Matador's Ranger asset area in Lea County, providing the company with a significant boost in its drilling inventory. With 406 gross (203 net) drillable horizontal locations in the Wolfcamp, Bone Spring, and Avalon formations, Matador's prospects for growth are looking very promising indeed.
The Advance Energy acquisition has brought significant drilling potential to Matador, as Advance Energy is currently operating one drilling rig to drill 21 gross (19 net) wells in the northern part of Matador's Antelope Ridge asset area in Lea County. While the wells are not expected to be turned to sales until early 2024, the potential for increased production is high.
Matador's acquisition of Advance Energy has also resulted in the addition of approximately 35 miles of gas and water gathering pipelines to their infrastructure. Additionally, the company has purchased an active Devonian Salt Water Disposal well with strong injection capabilities, further enhancing its capacity for oil and gas production.
One of the most exciting aspects of the Advance Energy deal for Matador is the potential for undedicated acreage to be connected to their midstream subsidiary, Pronto Midstream LLC. This could provide enhanced flow assurance and even increase midstream value, offering significant benefits for the company's growth and success in the industry.

Callon Acquires $1.1 Billion Delaware Assets and Bows Out of Eagle Ford - Here's What You Need to Know
Callon is set to purchase Percussion Petroleum's Delaware assets for $475 million while selling its Eagle Ford assets to Ridgemar for $655 million. In a strategic step to optimize its operations, Callon Petroleum recently made headlines by sealing two deals on May 3, totaling a staggering $1.13 billion. The company is taking confident steps to bolster its presence in the Delaware Basin while bidding farewell to its stake in the Eagle Ford Shale.
Baytex Energy Group has announced that it will acquire Eagle Ford exploration and production company, Ranger Oil, for approximately $2.5 billion in cash and stock, which includes taking over the company's existing debt. Upon the successful closure of the acquisition, Baytex will have a controlling stake of approximately 63% in the newly merged company, leaving Ranger shareholders with around 37%. This significant move is in line with a trend of substantial mergers and acquisitions in the Eagle Ford area, with Marathon Oil, Devon Energy, and Chesapeake Energy among the companies involved in recent transactions.
Baytex Energy Corp., a prominent oil and gas company, has struck a deal to sell part of its Viking assets located in Forgan and Plato, southwest Saskatchewan. The transaction sealed at CAD 153.8 million (approximately US$113.23 million).
This summer, J.P. Morgan Securities highlighted Endeavor Energy Resources as the Midland Basin's standout in mergers and acquisitions, suggesting its value might approach $30 billion. Endeavor Energy Resources, a privately-owned entity in Midland focusing solely on its operations, has seen a significant uptick in production. It now boasts a production rate of 331,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d), marking a 25% increase from the previous year.
WhiteHawk Energy has recently completed a significant acquisition in the Marcellus Shale, investing $54 million. This deal has effectively doubled their mineral and royalty ownership in the Marcellus Shale, particularly in Greene and Washington counties in Pennsylvania. This region is noted for its high-quality natural gas reserves. WhiteHawk’s Marcellus assets now encompass approximately 475,000 gross unit acres, featuring production from about 1,315 horizontal shale wells. In addition to this, they own interests in 72 wells-in-progress, 64 permitted wells, and nearly 900 undeveloped Marcellus locations. This acquisition is expected to double WhiteHawk's net revenue interest in each well within its Marcellus holdings.
