Matt Loreman, COO of Development Capital Resources LLC (DCR), is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Loreman co-founded DCR, an oil and gas platform partnered with funds managed by Ares Management Corp., in 2017 with his current business partner, Ronnie Scott. He had previously served as a managing director in Evercore’s oil and gas advisory group where he executed M&A, divestiture, capital raising and restructuring transactions in the upstream space.
Known as a deal maker, Loreman takes pride in executing complex transactions. One of his most challenging projects to date was an infrastructure deal with California Resources Corp. (CRC) in February 2018.
“CRC has been a fantastic partner to date, but they were a skilled and tough negotiator up until documents were signed,” he said.
Loreman leads a seven-person team in Houston that sources, negotiates and manages joint ventures with DCR’s operating partners. Since its formation, DCR has signed four joint ventures to deploy $1.3 billion out of DCR-managed entities.
After years of hoping for oil prices to return to better days, the magical thinking by optimistic E&Ps is out, and private-equity firms are poised to pounce.
From zero 10 years ago, U.S. offshore wind projects set for $78 billion in capital investment this decade.
The divestiture includes the sale of its Appalachian Basin position, which Harvest Oil & Gas said in a statement will represent “substantially all of the assets of the company.”
