Esperanza Capital Partners on Aug. 26 announced the launch of its inaugural energy investment platform targeting the acquisition of assets located in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

“We believe historical under-investment in the GoM provides a unique opportunity for ECP to safely transition assets from larger operators to a focused, seller-aligned investment platform with a clean structure and balance sheet capable of substantial scale,” commented Managing Partner William Goodwin in a release from the Houston-based private investment firm on Aug. 26.

Goodwin founded Esperanza Capital Partners in 2021 with David M. Dunwoody Jr. alongside an investment from Cockrell Interests.
