Rock Hill’s Park Energy acquires Bray

Park Energy, a portfolio company of Rock Hill Capital Group, has bought Oklahoma-based manufacturer Bray Production Services. No financial terms were disclosed.


HOUSTON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Park Energy Services, LLC (“Park Energy”) has acquired Oklahoma-based manufacturer Bray Production Services, LLC (“Bray”) in a move to better serve operators with low pressure and vapor recovery applications.

The sale, completed October 23, includes the transfer of Bray’s operations personnel to Park Energy along with all revenue-producing assets — chiefly, a fleet of natural gas compressors more economically suited to operators that handle fewer than 50,000 cubic feet of gas per day (50 Mcf/d).

“We are excited to announce the closing of our acquisition of Bray Production Services, a respected manufacturer and fleet operator of Quincy-based compressor units,” Park Energy CEO Jonathan Mitchell said. “The addition of Quincy reciprocating packages furthers our commitment to field-based optimization.”

The newly purchased 27-horsepower reciprocating compressors will offer Park Energy’s customers a more efficient option for low pressure applications, saving 33% in monthly expenses and cutting capital expenditures by more than 65%.

“Too often, wellhead or vapor recovery compression is oversized, resulting in tremendous inefficiency and lost profits,” Mitchell added. “Park Energy’s focus is, as always, creating value for both our customers and our stakeholders.”

Park Energy expects this latest investment to pay dividends immediately, as there are approximately 200,000 producing wells in the United States that generate up to 50 Mcf/d.

Park Energy Services is a portfolio company of Rock Hill Capital Group.
