Press Release

On February 19, 2014, Redwood Midstream Partners, LLC (“Redwood”) and Five Point Capital Partners LLC (“Five Point”) announced the funding of Redwood with a $75 million equity commitment from Five Point. The Houston-based Redwood will seek to provide midstream infrastructure solutions to underserved oil and gas producers. Redwood will focus on the development, expansion and optimization of midstream energy infrastructure for small to mid-sized producers in emerging shale producing regions.

Redwood is led by Marty Patterson, a midstream energy veteran with more than 30 years of industry experience. Prior to founding Redwood, Mr. Patterson was a member of the founding management team at American Midstream Partners. At American Midstream, Mr. Patterson was responsible for the development, integration and optimization of midstream operations across the Gulf Coast. Prior to American Midstream, Mr. Patterson held various senior commercial, development, and operational roles at Foothills Energy Development, IDACORP Energy, and Cabot Oil and Gas.

Marty Patterson, President of Redwood, said, “I am excited to partner with a great team of midstream investors who truly understand the energy infrastructure space, its changing landscape and the opportunity to provide producers with timely solutions and competitive economics. Redwood will develop service oriented partnerships to provide infrastructure in a collaborative and transparent process. With Five Point’s depth of capital and Redwood’s strategy to provide superior service, I’m excited about our future.”

Matt Morrow, a Partner of Five Point, added, “We look forward to partnering with Marty and his team to take advantage of the unprecedented need for new energy infrastructure to support emerging shale regions, particularly within the first 25 miles of the wellhead. Our analysis indicates that these needs are substantial and are not sufficiently being met for mid-sized and small independent producers. Redwood Midstream is well positioned to capitalize on this market opportunity.”
