GSO Capital Partners has invested $5.5 billion in new upstream investments since January 2015, and another $1.5 billion into existing investments. Since the downturn began, GSO Capital Partners LP—the mezzanine and credit arm of New York City-based private equity behemoth Blackstone, has planted some $7 billion into the oil and gas sector, according to senior managing director and GSO co-head Robert Horn, and that’s a decision based on timely opportunity and industry optimism.
At 2:45 a.m. on the May morning that WildHorse Resource Development Corp. was scheduled to give its first-quarter conference call after having gone public in December, CEO Jay Graham and his executive team were inking the final signatures on a $625-million deal with Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and KKR for a swath of acreage in the East Texas Eagle Ford play. Just five and a half hours later, the WildHorse executives announced the deal and results.
The summer oil price swoon left many in a dour mood. Following a winter in which West Texas Intermediate held above $50 per barrel (bbl) for several months, operators cautiously rolled out capex plans and rigs, ready to brush off the dust of the downturn and move on. Then the spring got choppy and, by the end of the second quarter, oil took our breath away with a $40 flyby.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
