Rangeland Energy to Sell Rangeland Energy II, LLC to Andeavor

Energy (“Rangeland”) today announced that the company and its
financial sponsor EnCap
Flatrock Midstream have entered into a definitive agreement to sell
Rangeland Energy II, LLC (“Rangeland II”) to Tesoro Refining & Marketing
Company LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Andeavor
(NYSE: ANDV) for an undisclosed amount. Rangeland II owns and operates
the RIO
System, a multipart crude oil and frac sand logistics system
originating in the heart of the Delaware Basin. The system provides
access and optionality to multiple crude oil producers and end markets
and consists of the RIO Pipeline System and the RIO Hub.

The all-cash transaction is expected to close early in the first quarter
of 2018, subject to customary regulatory approvals. Substantially all of
Rangeland II’s field employees will be invited to remain with the asset
as employees of Andeavor. The Rangeland II management team will focus on
the expansion of Rangeland Energy III, LLC (“Rangeland III”). Rangeland
III is developing the STEPS
logistics terminal in Corpus Christi and pursuing midstream
opportunities in western Canada.

STEPS is an integrated hydrocarbon logistics system that will receive
and store refined products, liquefied petroleum gas (“LPG”) and other
hydrocarbons at a new terminal hub now under construction in Corpus
Christi, Texas, and transport them to terminals primarily located in
RIO System Details
The RIO System is comprised of four core facilities, with additional
facilities under development. The RIO Hub rail facility is located
approximately 12 miles south of Carlsbad in Eddy County, New Mexico, and
is the Delaware Basin’s premier frac sand rail-unloading, storage and
truck-loading facility. The RIO Pipeline consists of 110 miles of
12-inch crude oil pipeline, bridging the Delaware and Midland basins
with connectivity at the State Line Terminal in Loving County, Texas,
and the Geneva and Zurich terminals in Midland, Texas. Today, the RIO
System provides shippers optionality to access the Colorado City,
Cushing, Corpus Christi and Houston markets through Midland. Planning
for additional Midland connectivity is in progress to offer even greater
optionality to shippers on the RIO System.
From Rangeland
“Rangeland II Chief Operating Officer Steve Broker and his team have
done an outstanding job of creating value by developing a scalable
system with connectivity to the Midland market center and beyond,” said
Rangeland President and CEO Chris Keene. “We look forward to continuing
to work with EnCap Flatrock Midstream as we leverage our successful
terminaling experience to develop the STEPS Terminal in Corpus Christi
and pursue exciting new business opportunities in Canada.”
From EnCap Flatrock Midstream
“This is our second successful realization with Rangeland,” said EnCap
Flatrock Midstream Managing Partner and Founder Bill Waldrip. “Chris
Keene and Steve Broker were early to recognize the midstream
opportunities in the Delaware Basin and first to market in 2014 with
what soon became RIO’s comprehensive logistics platform. Rangeland
management was early to recognize similar opportunities in the Bakken
when we first backed them a little more than eight years ago. When you
combine extraordinary vision with a team that has the ability to execute
as well as the Rangeland team does, you have a recipe for success for
our institutional investors and the Rangeland team. It’s been a great
relationship, and we look forward to working with Rangeland for many
years to come.”
