The private equity backed companies unveiled the strategic combination for undisclosed terms in a joint press release on June 19. The combined company is set to operate under the Chisholm Oil and Gas name and be headquartered in Tulsa, Okla., following completion of the transaction slotted for third-quarter 2019.
