Silverstone Energy Partners Announces $14 Million Project Equity Financing for Ocean Oil's Acquisition and Development of Permian Basin Properties

HOUSTON, Sept. 20, 2022 -- Silverstone Energy Partners LLC ("Silverstone") provided a project equity financing to fund the acquisition of Delaware Basin New Mexico oil & gas properties by Ocean Oil Corporation ("Ocean"). Ocean is a Denver-based private E&P led by Brooke O'Neal.

Marshall Lynn Bass, Managing Director of Silverstone, said, "We are excited to provide Ocean with capital to purchase and develop this attractive, non-op asset. The asset is at an inflection point, with the operator drilling 39 new horizontal wells in a short period. We benefit from the resultant boost in production while the seller is able to re-direct their CAPEX dollars to other projects."

Brooke O'Neal, Founder and CEO of Ocean, added, "We've established a reputation of consistently closing acquisitions or farm-ins of non-op, unconventional properties to help owners avoid the capital disruption of their own internal project needs. Silverstone has expanded our capabilities even further."

"This acquisition was on the smaller side of our capabilities but has huge strategic value to Brooke and her team," continued Bass. "We stand ready to help them with similar transactions."
