09:06 EDTBX, CXBlackstone reaches a financial closing for Ventika
Fisterra Energy, a company majority owned by funds managed by Blackstone (BX), and Blackstone Energy Partners, announced it has reached a financial closing for Ventika. Ventika will be located in the northeastern Mexican state of Nuevo Leon and is comprised of two 126 megawatt wind farms with total capacity of 252MW. Once completed the project will alleviate significant demands on Mexico’s existing power infrastructure, helping Mexico reduce pollution and CO2 emissions, and meet its target of achieving 35% renewable generation by 2025. The $650M project is being jointly developed by CEMEX (CX) and Fisterra Energy. This investment funds the installation of 84 Acciona AW-3000 wind turbine generators, each with a hub height of 120 meters and a nominal output of 3MW per turbine. Construction of the project, which is scheduled to be completed in FY16, is expected to generate approximately 1K jobs and more than 2K additional jobs in related industries.

08:42 EDTBXBlackstone Energy Partners II is oversubscribed at $4.5B
Blackstone announced the commencement of the investment period for its second energy-focused private equity fund, Blackstone Energy Partners II, with total commitments of $4.5B. BEP II received significant interest from both existing and new investors, with demand well surpassing the fund’s $4.5B hard cap. Investors in the fund include a diverse group of U.S. state pension funds, corporate pension funds, sovereign wealth funds, insurance companies, endowments, foundations and family offices. Like its predecessor fund BEP I, a $2.4B fund that had its final close in September 2012, BEP II will invest in control-oriented equity and equity-linked interests in companies, assets and development projects in the energy and natural resources sector on a global basis. To date, Blackstone’s energy-focused private equity team of professionals has deployed over $8B in this strategy. Blackstone's $16B diversified global private equity fund will continue to invest alongside BEP II in energy transactions on a 50/50 basis.
