Capital and Sponsorship for the Natural Resources Industry Since 1988

Natural Gas Partners (NGP) is a $10.5 billion family of private equity funds that makes direct equity investments in energy companies.  The firm invests where there is a clear match between a management team’s growth strategy and NGP’s unique sponsorship capabilities.  NGP understands the dynamics of investing in a commodity business and works to support its portfolio as it executes on its growth strategy.

The strength of the firm lies in establishing relationships with “owner-managers” who see the mutual advantage of having an active equity sponsor and then financing those management teams numerous times over many years.  NGP’s investments range from $10-$500 million.

The firm considers investments in companies specializing in:

  • Oil and gas acquisitions and exploitation
  • Oil and gas development drilling
  • Oil field service
  • Other unique, energy-related businesses
  • Start-up operations where significant opportunity exists

Investing in energy since 1988, the NGP team offers both continuity and depth of experience.  We are proud of the reputation we have earned as a solid and dependable financial partner for the industry and as responsible custodians of our investors capital.
