Total gross proceeds from the offering were $300 million before deducting underwriting discounts and commissions and other offering expenses payable by the Company.

The Company’s sponsor is an affiliate of Carnelian, an investment firm that focuses on opportunities in the North American energy space in partnership with best-inclass management teams.
