Oasis Midstream Partners LP (OMP - Free Report) recently completed the contribution and simplification agreement with Oasis Petroleum (OAS - Free Report) by acquiring all the remaining interests of the latter in Bobcat DevCo LLC and Beartooth DevCo LLC.

Via simplification, the midstream partnership (formed by Oasis Petroleum) expanded its stake in Bobcat DevCo from 35% to 100% and in Beartooth DevCo from 70% to 100%.

Oasis Petroleum, which recently came out of a pandemic-forced bankruptcy, anticipates $81 million in cash flows from Oasis Midstream limited partner distributions during 2021 post the simplification.

Further, in an effort to simplify its corporate structure, Oasis Petroleum withdrew its incentive-distribution rights under the MLP in exchange for $512.5 million ($231.5 million in cash and 14.8 million Oasis Midstream common units).

In addition, on Mar 30, Oasis Midstream completed a private placement of $450 million in aggregate principal amount of 8% senior unsecured notes due 2029 to qualifying purchasers.

The firm’s CEO Taylor Reid said, "This accretive transaction enhances our scale and strengthens OMP's attractive position in the core of the Williston Basin. OMP is uniquely positioned to benefit from Oasis's development program and capture additional third party business. Volumes from both Oasis and third parties provide a solid foundation through 2021 and beyond. This transaction is extremely attractive for our investors by allowing OMP to increase its scale in an accretive manner, while improving its competitive position to capitalize on future opportunities.”
