The COLT Hub acquisition is an expansion of Inergy Midstream’s shale-focused infrastructure portfolio and a natural extension of Inergy’s refinery and producer-services businesses. Additionally, the COLT Hub has a first-mover advantage in the Bakken and should lead to incremental crude oil and NGL investments.
“The COLT Hub is an attractive asset that provides refiners with crucial access to Bakken-sourced crude oil and offers producers reliable takeaway capacity to premium demand markets,” said Bill Gautreaux, President of Inergy Services. “We are excited to acquire and grow this business.”
To fund the Rangeland acquisition, Inergy Midstream has entered into an agreement with institutional investors to sell $225 million of common units in a private placement concurrent with, and conditioned upon, the closing of the transaction. Institutions participating in the private placement are funds managed by Kayne Anderson Capital Advisors, L.P., FAMCO MLP, a division of Advisory Research, Inc., Tortoise Capital Advisors, LLC, and Magnetar Capital, among others. In addition, Inergy Midstream has obtained $225 million of committed unsecured debt financing from Citigroup Global Markets Inc. and J.P. Morgan.
