Plantation Petroleum Company is backed by equity commitments from EnCap Investments L.P. and Old Ironsides Energy, LLC. EnCap and Liberty have been steadfast partners to our companies since 2002 and the formation of Plantation Petroleum Holdings, LLC. That entity was sold in 2003 to Forest Oil Corporation, and a second was formed with backing from EnCap and Old Ironsides that same year. Plantation II was sold in 2005 to Range Resources Corporation for $116.5 million. The Plantation management team partnered with EnCap and Old Ironsides again to form Plantation III (sold to EV Energy Partners L.P. in 2007 for $160 million) and Plantation IV (sold to Merit Energy in 2011 for $326.3 million). EnCap and Old Ironsides now back Plantation Petroleum Company, which was formed in 2012 alongside its subsidiary, PPC Operating Company.
