North Avenue Capital Infuses Rural Oklahoma's Oil and Gas Industry with $9.2 Million in USDA-Backed Funding
North Avenue Capital (“NAC”), a leading provider of USDA-backed commercial loans, is cementing its support of rural Oklahoma’s Oil and Gas Industry by providing Kingfisher Disposal Services, LLC, Kingfisher Disposal Assets Holdings, LLC, and Dibble SWD Holdings, LLC with $9.2 million in total funding through government-guaranteed commercial loans.
The owner and operator of the borrowing entities has developed, managed, and sold saltwater disposal sites in the south-central Oklahoma Province (“SCOOP”) and Sooner Trend Anadarko basin Canadian and Kingfisher counties (“STACK”) for 20 years. These areas have been recognized as some of the most lucrative spaces in the nation for Oil and Gas (“O&G”) exploration since 2016.
The USDA Business & Industry loans from NAC will help the Borrowers refinance existing debt, purchase new machinery and equipment, fund payment reserves, and pay loan-related soft costs.
The Borrowers have a common management team with more than 20 years of permitting, constructing, and operating experience. The extensive background of their leaders provides the Companies with opportunities to continue the construction of new facilities and capture more market share throughout the region.
Based in one of the O&G industry’s most active regions, the surrounding community benefits mightily from the Companies’ saltwater disposal wells, which are designed to dispose of wastewater generated from oilfield drilling in a controlled, monitored, and environmentally conscious manner. The Borrowers exclusively operate wells at depths below five thousand feet, giving them a competitive advantage over competitors that operate shallow depth wells.
