The all-cash transaction, expected to close in the first half of 2022, will see Crescent acquire the Uinta Basin assets previously owned by EP Energy for $815 million. Overall, the acquisition is consistent with Crescent’s strategy to acquire high-value & accretive, cash flowing assets and the company plans to share additional information on the transaction during a conference call in early March 2022.

“We are acquiring these assets at a compelling valuation. They are a great addition to our existing Rockies footprint and align perfectly with our cash flow based strategy. Importantly, this transaction maintains our commitment to financial strength and flexibility while adding meaningful scale to our low-decline production base, free cash flow and proven inventory of highly economic re-investment opportunity.”
