Plenty of private equity capital is willing to play in the oil and gas space, and Claire Harvey, principal on Pine Brook Partners’ energy investment team, shares with Rigzone how companies can make a deal. Rigzone: How does Pine Brook’s ‘line of equity’ approach work in private equity investing? Harvey: Pine Brook invests capital to build businesses. This typically comes in two forms: growth capital in existing businesses, or in start-up businesses.
Argentina’s Vaca Muerta is one of the few places in the world outside of the United States developing unconventional oil and gas. Since the first test wells proved in 2011 that hydrocarbons are indeed laced throughout the formation, the play’s promise has grown beyond traditional drilling methods. But the ability to lure oil and gas from the ground is one thing. Paying for the privilege is quite another.
Although much of the use of digital technology in the oil and gas space is in automating back-office processes, companies are moving toward taking it to the field for the sake of safety and efficiency. Fay Shong, Energy and Digital Strategy Partner at EY told Rigzone the digitalization phenomenon has transformed the way companies manage their mid- and back-office processes. Recognizing the broad efficiency, companies are now looking at ways to apply digitalization elsewhere.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
