Sovereign Wealth and Pension Money Flow Into Energy Funds

Private equity firms are still raising institutional investor capital to target investments in the U.S. energy sector. The Blackstone Group had total commitments of US$ 4.5 billion for its second energy fund, Blackstone Energy Partners II. Some large pensions invested in the fund include: New Jersey Division of Investment and Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS). Meanwhile, smaller funds and platforms are raising capital. Dallas-based PetroCap raised US$ 350 million in PetroCap Partners II, a fund focusing on oil & gas investments in the US$ 20 million to US$ 70 million range.

On the debt side, EIG Global Energy Partners and Winter Park-based Triloma Financial Group have formed Triloma EIG Global Energy Fund, an unlisted investment company that will allocate capital to privately originated energy company and project debt.
