Double Eagle Energy launched a new venture to “aggressively pursue very large acquisitions” in the Permian Basin, Co-CEOs Cody Campbell and John Sellers said, with the addition of a new financial backer—EnCap Investments LP.

“I have known Cody and John for many years and our team at EnCap has long admired their approach to business,” Gary Petersen, founder of EnCap Investments, commented in a company release on June 19.

In the release, Double Eagle said it had entered a strategic partnership with EnCap to form Double Eagle Energy Holdings IV LLC and Tumbleweed Royalty IV LLC. The new entities have also received minority investments from Apollo Global Management LLC, Magnetar Capital and other strategic institutional partners. In total, Double Eagle IV has raised over $1.7 billion of equity commitment.
