Within the energy sector, we have completed transactions for upstream and midstream MLPs, oil field service companies, as well as independent and alternative energy based power producers. Within the transportation arena, we have completed numerous transactions for global maritime shipping companies, domestic trucking operators and other service providers. We are focused on utilizing our financing and advisory products and services to meet the needs of our clients in the growth of infrastructure assets on a global basis.
Master Limited Partnerships & Royalty Trusts
We focus on midstream MLPs which typically represent pipelines, gathering systems, processing plants and storage facilities. We have raised public equity capital for midstream MLPs as well as the monetization of general partner interests. On the upstream side, we have raised equity capital for MLPs and Royalty Trusts which own mature, proved producing oil and gas properties which are structured to provide relatively predictable cash flow streams. Overall, our investors are attracted to MLPs which provide an attractive total return story of tax efficient, growing cash distributions combined with potential for capital appreciation.
Upstream Exploration & Production
U.S. onshore E&P companies are aggressively developing shale assets and increasing domestic hydrocarbon production. We have experience in strategic advisory, acquisitions and divestitures, and capital raising for these E&P companies. In addition, we have advised companies in restructuring situations and asset purchases out of bankruptcy.
Oil Field Equipment & Services
Oppenheimer has been engaged in transactions involving various public oil field equipment and services companies. We have a long history in the onshore and offshore drilling sectors, combined with thorough knowledge of the engineering and construction markets, offshore transportation, down hole services as well as seismic surveyors.
Alternative Energy Producers
We have significant experience in project financing of biomass power generation facilities. While we have historically funded a number of greenfield projects, in today's market we focus on existing producers. Public policy initiatives, tax incentives and fundamental economics bode well for the long term prospects of this sector and we at Oppenheimer look to help meet our clients' growth opportunities.
