After closing, Brazos will retain its name and operate as a portfolio company of NHIP II. The members of the Brazos management team will remain in their current roles.

I am proud of what the Brazos team has accomplished in three short years,” said Brad Iles, Brazos Chief Executive Officer. “We have built best-in-class assets in one of the most prolific and economic oil and gas producing regions in the United States. We are thankful for MSI’s commitment to our team and with their support we will continue to aggressively expand our business to serve our customers’ rapidly growing needs.

Iles continued, “We are also extremely grateful to have had Old Ironsides Energy as a trusted partner. Their support and expertise, all along the way, has been critical to our success.
