Hawkwood Energy LLC agreed to be acquired by WildFire Energy I LLC in a transaction that the Denver-based private Eagle Ford operator said values it at approximately $650 million.

Founded in 2012 with a line-of-equity commitment from lead investors Warburg Pincus and Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan, Hawkwood has since accumulated over 160,000 net acres in the Eagle Ford shale play in East Texas. The company was ranked by Hart Energy’s Oil and Gas Investor as a top 100 private E&P and the #3 private operator in the Eagle Ford play in terms of production.

“We are proud of what Hawkwood has accomplished since entering the Eagle Ford and believe that joining with WildFire is the next logical step in our evolution,” commented Hawkwood CEO Jim Addison in the release.
