Sage Road Capital (“Sage Road”) is a Houston-based private equity investor in the upstream oil and gas sector. Founded in 2012, Sage Road targets lower middle-market investment opportunities in North America with a primary regional focus on Texas, Oklahoma and the surrounding states. Led by its Managing Partners, Joshua L. Batchelor and Benjamin A. Stamets, the Sage Road team is composed of seven investment professionals with over 90 years of collective experience and a track record of successfully investing together across industry cycles.
Sage Road seeks to partner with exceptional owner-operators with a defined competitive advantage to exploit “scalable niches,” which typically consist of producing properties and lower-risk development projects in conventional basins with quantifiable operational upside and development potential. In active partnership with proven, entrepreneurial management teams that have demonstrated geographic, geologic and operational expertise, Sage Road believes such assets with proven resource and development/exploitation upside provide compelling risk-adjusted return potential.
