Strategy

Our Focus

Strong Management. We are interested in quality assets controlled by quality management teams. Oil and gas management teams should be demonstrably adept at creating value in basins/formations consistent with those of the transaction being financed.

Strong Collateral. We are looking for senior secured positions in which reasonable asset coverage is present to underpin our advances.

Middle Market. To date, CSG Investments, Inc. and its affiliates have closed more than $2 billion in financing transactions.  We are open to secured transactions at the project or corporate level and will consider financings ranging from $20MM to $550MM+.

Management- and Stakeholder-Friendly Structures. We structure our transactions to ensure a cost-effective financing in which management retains maximum control. The CSG Oil & Gas team has the ability to advance more than a traditional conforming borrowing base, advancing against all reserve categories. Further, we can advance against new production at a quicker pace than most companies, allowing you to accelerate growth in value to your stakeholders without trading away your economic upside.

Stable Funding Source. Our “buy and hold” orientation means we’re not motivated by trading and syndication issues. Backed by multibillion-dollar, privately held financial institutions, we have an exceptional ability to deliver on our commitment and fund the continued growth of our borrowers while eliminating syndication risk.
