TULSA, Okla. – BlueStone Natural Resources II, LLC has announced that it has closed on the purchase of Quicksilver Resources Inc.’s U.S. oil and gas assets, 1,017 producing wells in the Barnett Shale play, with additional holdings in West Texas.

In addition, BlueStone has entered into 10-year agreements with Crestwood Equity Partners LP to gather the gas from the Alliance, Lake Arlington and Cowtown systems, which comprise the majority of the Barnett Shale assets.

This acquisition will establish BlueStone as one of the premier producers in the Barnett Shale, with ownership of more than 1,200 wells located throughout the play.

“BlueStone is excited about this tremendous growth opportunity,” said John Redmond, BlueStone’s President and Chief Executive Officer.

When coupled with its South Texas holdings, BlueStone will have net production of more than 180 MMCFE (million cubic feet equivalent) per day.

BlueStone employs more than 50 people in its Tulsa, Oklahoma headquarters and an additional 100 field employees located in offices throughout Texas.

BlueStone partnered with Natural Gas Partners to purchase the assets, leveraging its 13-year relationship with the Irving, Texas-based equity sponsor.

“These assets are the perfect fit for our team. We are excited about moving forward with our existing team, our new team members, and new partners to grow this asset base over the coming years,” said Redmond.

Additionally, BlueStone is pleased to announce the promotion of Doug Redmond to Chief Operating Officer of BlueStone. Doug has more than 24 years’ experience in the oil and gas industry and had been functioning as BlueStone’s Vice President of Engineering. Doug will continue in his role as the Vice President of Engineering as he assumes his additional role as Chief Operating Officer.
