Devon Energy Corp. wrapped up its previously announced purchase of RimRock Oil and Gas LP on July 21, described by Devon as a “bolt-on” acquisition in the Williston Basin.

Oklahoma City-based Devon had entered into a definitive purchase agreement to acquire the leasehold interest and related assets of RimRock, a Warburg Pincus portfolio company in the Williston Basin, for cash consideration of $865 million in early June.

The RimRock bolt-on acquisition adds a contiguous position of 38,000 net acres (88% working interest) directly offsetting and overlapping Devon’s existing position. Production from the acquired assets is expected to increase to an average of 20,000 boe/d over the next year.
