Energy Transfer signs .25bn deal to acquire WTG Midstream

Energy Transfer has agreed to acquire WTG Midstream in a deal worth approximately $3.25 billion from Stonepeak subsidiaries Davis Estate and Diamondback Energy.

The transaction price includes a cash payment of $2.45 billion and the issuance of approximately 50.8 million new common units of Energy Transfer to the sellers.

Diamondback Energy, which currently holds a 25% stake in WTG, will receive approximately $375 million once the transaction is completed.

Travis Stice, President and CEO of Diamondback, said: “Not only has our partnership generated an outsized economic return, but WTG’s gas gathering and processing system continues to support Diamondback’s substantial activity on our dedicated permit .

“We are excited to further expand our relationship with Energy Transfer and look forward to a smooth operational transition.”

WTG provides midstream services, including wellhead collection, intra-basin transportation and processing services.

The company, through its 6,000-mile pipeline network, supplies major operators in Martin, Howard, Reagan, Upton and Irion counties in the Midland Basin.

The acquisition also grants Energy Transfer a 20% interest in the BANGL pipeline, improving connectivity between the Permian Basin and Texas Gulf Coast markets.

Subject to regulatory approval and customary closing conditions, the transaction is expected to close in the third quarter of 2024.
