Tommy Waldrip, managing director of EnCap Flatrock Midstream, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Waldrip joined Flatrock Energy Advisors in 2006 and EnCap Flatrock Midstream upon its formation a couple of year later by a partnership between Flatrock and EnCap Investments LP.
EnCap Flatrock Midstream is a venture capital firm focused on identifying, investing in and enhancing the value of great businesses and attractive assets in the midstream sector of North America’s oil and gas industry.
For Waldrip, the oil and gas industry is a natural fit.
“What drew me in and what I still love today, is that this business is about people,” he said. “I love working with teams of smart, creative people. These relationships inspire and drive me on a daily basis.”
Waldrip currently serves on the board of directors for Aspen Midstream, Candor Midstream, Evolution Midstream, Ironwood Midstream Energy Partners II and Tall Oak Midstream II and III.
If dealmakers can get over the past year, with its misery as treacherous and deep as a river of mud, they may find a promising market in the months ahead.
Analysts at Cowen & Co. boosted their earnings estimates for Apache due to better-realized pricing, notably in gas that “reflect greater exposure to daily pricing versus bid week.”
The appointment of Tiffany “TJ” Thom Cepak as board chairman replaces Mark A. “Mac” McFarland, who was named as permanent president and CEO of California Resources last month.
