Crude oil vs natural gas

Modern Bank’s newly established Energy Lending group is pleased to announce the closing of a new Senior Secured Oil & Gas Reserve-based credit facility to support TruRoc I XP, LLC’s purchase of primarily operated gas properties across multiple counties in South and East Texas. TruRoc acquires conventional oil and gas assets, enhances production, and improves efficiency and safety. This acquisition provides TruRoc with 85,000 net acres in core areas of the Texas gulf coast, with a stable production base and impactful upside potential. TruRoc I XP, LLC is an affiliate of Alabama-based Fletcher Operating, which lends its extensive track record of operating wells in South Texas. The financing closed on January 21, 2021.

Thomas Stelmar, Head of Energy Lending at Modern Bank, said, “Supported by synergies with Fletcher Petroleum Corp.’s adjacent legacy asset base, TruRoc is well positioned to transition its newly acquired assets to drive additional production. Modern Bank is excited to partner with TruRoc Resources’ principals and proud to announce the inaugural transaction.”
