Catapult Energy Services Group was formed by Natural Gas Partners and NGP Energy Technology Partners, affiliates of NGP Energy Capital Management (NGP), to provide startup equity capital to experienced, entrepreneurial oilfield services managers.

Natural Gas Partners (NGP) is a $10.5 billion family of private equity funds that makes direct equity investments in energy companies. The firm invests where there is a clear match between a management team’s growth strategy and NGP’s unique sponsorship capabilities. NGP understands the dynamics of investing in a commodity business and works to support its portfolio as it executes on its growth strategy. The strength of the firm lies in establishing relationships with “owner-managers” who see the mutual advantage of having an active equity sponsor and then financing those management teams numerous times over many years. NGP’s investments range from $10-$500 million.

NGP Energy Technology Partners (“NGP ETP”) invests equity capital for growth and buyout transactions in companies that provide products and services to the oil and gas, power, energy efficiency, and alternative energy sectors. Founded in 2005, NGP ETP manages approximately $500 million in committed capital and is led by investment professionals that have extensive experience investing in virtually all types of energy technology. The investment team strives to partner with strong, experienced management teams and work with them to create significant value.
