DENVER, June 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — DCP Midstream, LP (NYSE: DCP) announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Permian Basin gathering and processing assets (“The James Lake System”) from Woodland Midstream II, a portfolio company of EIV Capital, in a transaction valued at $160 million, subject to certain customary adjustments. The James Lake System’s proximity to DCP’s existing assets creates the opportunity for significant synergies, reducing the acquisition multiple over time.

This transaction is expected to be completed in the third quarter of 2022, subject to customary regulatory approvals. The transaction is expected to be funded using cash on hand and borrowings under DCP’s existing bank facilities.


Holland & Hart LLP acted as legal counsel to DCP during the transaction. Intrepid Partners, LLC is serving as financial advisor and McDermott Will & Emery LLP is serving as legal advisor to Woodland Midstream II in connection with the transaction.
