Warren Equity, Multifuels establish new midstream oil/gas company

Multifuels will be targeting natural gas for power plants, petrochemical plants, industrial complexes, LNG export facilities

A growing Texas economy and an expanding LNG export sector were the reasons behind the formation of a new Houston-based midstream company created by Warren Equity Partners and Multifuels, L.P.

MultifuelsMultifuels, L.P. is contributing an existing natural gas pipeline that supplies a utility service area in Texas, and Warren Equity, a middle market private equity firm,  is contributing approximately $20 million of cash and equity commitments.

“Warren Equity shares our vision for the future of Multifuels, and we are enthusiastic about this next chapter in our organization,” said Multifuels’ CEO Randy Gibbs in a press release.

“We look forward to working with Warren Equity to pursue what we view as a tremendous opportunity in the energy space.”

Multifuels Midstream Group will own, operate and develop midstream projects in North America, with an emphasis on lateral distribution pipelines. These laterals will transport natural gas from main lines to end users, such as utilities and petrochemical plants, under long-term contracts that are not exposed to fluctuations in the price of oil and gas.

The company will be led by a seasoned management team that is highly experienced in the development of pipelines, gathering systems and storage assets in the oil and gas industry.

Randy Gibbs will be the CEO of the Company, and Dick Robinson, Gil Muhl and Jim Ducote will form the remainder of the management team.

The company will execute on an existing portfolio of development projects which capitalizes on the U.S. trend toward increased utilization of natural gas in power plants, petrochemical plants and industrial complexes; growth in the number of residential households accessing natural gas through local distribution companies; and increased export opportunities through LNG facilities.

The company’s projects are developed under long-term contracts with strong creditworthy counterparts.

“We are excited to partner with the Multifuels team,” said Steven Wacaster, a partner at Warren Equity.

“In addition to the operating pipeline asset the Company will own at close, the team has developed a unique set of project opportunities that capitalize on strong trends in this environment with an excellent risk/return profile.”
