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.
