Diamondback Energy acquires Midland Basin assets for US$437.8 million

Report summary

This deal is the first major M&A transaction associated with the Wolfcamp since low oil prices muted the market. Low oil prices do not appear to have drastically altered the asset valuation; Diamondback paid a comparable price to what Breitburn paid, adjusted for flowing production, for adjacent acreage in October 2014 (when WTI was priced at US$85/bbl). Diamondback paid higher than our estimated Deep Basin base case valuation of US$12,600/acre, (outlined in the Wolfcamp Key Play Report).
