Vaquero Midstream has received a “substantial” equity commitment from New York-based private investment firm Yorktown Energy Partners, LLC.
Vaquero, which provides integrated crude oil and natural gas midstream services, including gathering, treating, processing, compression, liquids handling and transmission, is pursuing opportunities in emerging resource plays across North America.
The management team is led by three founding partners who have a long history of working together. The team includes CEO and president Gary E Conway, and founding principals Bryant H Patton and William W Davis.
Prior to Vaquero, Conway served as VP of engineering and operations at TEAK Midstream where he managed all aspects of engineering and operations, helping steer the company from the initial acquisition stage to full execution of assets in the Eagle Ford shale.
Patton has served as an investor, principal or advisor to more than 40 upstream and midstream companies across North America. He is the founder and president of Brycap Investments, Inc and has worked in the past with TEAK Midstream and Crosstex Energy. Davis recently retired from Crosstex Energy, where he helped guide the company’s growth since 2001, first as CFO and then as COO.
