Representative Work:

  •  Advised Sanchez Energy Corporation in a joint development agreement with Blackstone Group LP for a $2.3 billion acquisition of Eagle Ford Shale assets.

  • Represented Diamondback Exploration Inc. in a $2.43 billion acquisition of oil and gas assets in the Delaware Basin, including 76,000 prime net acres in Pecos and Reeves counties. The transaction, which included complex indemnity provisions and leasing options, was negotiated and documented in only eight days and doubled Diamondback’s prime drilling inventory.
  • Counseled Gulfport Energy Corporation in a $1.85 billion acquisition of assets in the Oklahoma SCOOP play from Vitruvian II Woodford, LLC.
  • Negotiated and successfully disputed all asserted title defects in Newfield Exploration’s $588 million sale of its Granite Wash assets in Texas and Oklahoma, saving the client more than $27 million in purchase price adjustments.
