TULSA, Okla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Triumph Energy Partners, LLC (“Triumph”) announced today that it has closed on the purchase of oil and gas assets in the STACK play for a purchase price of $74.5 million. The assets include approximately 8,000 net acres (100% HBP) and 5 mmcfe/d of net production in Blaine, Kingfisher and Canadian Counties, Oklahoma.

“The STACK play is proving to generate superior returns in a challenging environment, particularly in the overpressured window,” commented Jack Kueser, CEO of Triumph. “We believe this asset, which is concentrated in the overpressured window, will provide Triumph a springboard towards more growth in the STACK via acquisitions, partnerships and drilling opportunities.”

“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with the Triumph management team, which has an impressive track record of creating value. This position is in the core of the STACK play, where results continue to improve, and is a great representation of the kind of opportunity Kayne Anderson Energy Funds is seeking to capitalize on in the current environment,” said David Habachy, Managing Director at Kayne Anderson.
