Scout provides a direct oil and gas asset investment vehicle, focused on high-PDP, mature, long-lived existing production in conventional basins. Typical assets are in well-established producing basins, shallow wellbores and highly forecastable, shallow production decline curves. The firm prefers operated assets, and has a corporate and field operations team to incorporate and operate acquisitions. Scout assets generate returns through periodic distributions and exits, and the fund provides long-term exposure to oil, gas and natural gas liquids. The fund will reinvest capital into development projects with high return hurdles and seek to distribute remaining cash flows to investors.
The Scout funds are designed for institutional limited partners. Scout investors include leading endowments, foundations, public and private pension funds, real-asset focused fund-of-funds and multi/single-family offices. Scout welcomes both taxable and tax-exempt investors with funds structured for their requirements.
