Through its private equity funds Kimmeridge Energy aims to leverage its industry knowledge in energy investment to deliver value to its investors. The team’s operating and investment experience allows Kimmeridge to invest directly in assets, avoiding double carried interest and dilution of returns.

Direct investment also enables the Kimmeridge management team to have greater control over operating and strategic decision making. Rather than reviewing quarterly capital budgets through board representation, Kimmeridge’s investments are governed by partnership agreements and joint operating agreements, giving Kimmeridge decision making authority on leasing, drilling, capital budgets and exit timing.
