Hunt Oil, TSSP to jointly develop Midland Basin acreage

TSSP, a special situations investment platform, and Hunt Oil Company, a privately held oil and gas exploration and production company, agreed to develop certain of Hunt Oil's assets in the Midland Basin area of the Permian Basin. The development area covers approximately 18,000 net acres across Martin, Glasscock, Midland and Upton counties in Texas. 

TSSP has committed up to $400 million to fund the development which is expected to take approximately three years to deploy.  Additional terms were not disclosed.
