The advent of the Shale Revolution has caused a major shift in the type of energy investment strategy we deem suitable for institutional investors. With strategic focus, Canaan Resource Partners has assumed the role of capital provider for development drilling efforts in domestic, onshore shale plays through its latest private equity partnership, Canaan Resource Partners Drilling Fund LP. The fund typically seeks non-operated ownership positions and is technically proficient in evaluating the investment suitability of projects within America’s top shale plays. We have a compelling level of capital commitments available for deployment in an immediate time frame for projects at both modest and significant investment levels. Using proprietary “big data” analysis and creative deal structures, we are well equipped to review projects with exceptional speed.
