Rice Energy acquires Vantage Energy for US$2.1 billion

Report summary

On 26 September, Rice Energy announced its plan to acquire Vantage Energy for approximately US$2.7 billion. Rice will pay US$2.1 billion for Vantage's upstream assets and Rice Midstream Partners (RMP) will purchase the acquired midstream assets for US$600 million. The upstream assets include 85,000 net core Marcellus acres in Greene County, with rights to the deeper Utica Shale on approximately 52,000 net acres, 31,000 net acres in Texas' Barnett Shale. The acreage and associated midstream infrastructure complements Rice's own development plans, as the pure-play Northeast producer has a focused strategy of pursuing core shale gas acreage.
