Services for the Energy Industry

When was the last time you met with a banker who really understood the energy business? At Texas Capital Bank, we’ve assembled a team of seasoned bankers with oil-patch knowledge to create our special Energy group, emphasizing oil & gas reserve-based loans to owner/managed independents.

Texas Capital Bank was founded on the entrepreneurial spirit that built independent banking and the independent oil & gas business years ago. We knew there was something missing when the big banks took over — the personal service, industry knowledge and relationships that banks and energy producers shared in the past. It’s time we brought it back.

We provide senior debt for:

  • Development drilling
  • Providing funds for capital expenditures against existing reserves
  • Acquiring oil and gas properties

We also look at midstream deals, such as:

  • Treating
  • Processing
  • Gathering systems
  • Compression

Better technology means better engineering.

Our in-house engineering capability takes advantage of PHDWin and Aries software for engineering analysis. If needed, we outsource engineering to one of several approved engineering firms. We share an affinity and a belief that the energy business is as important to Texas as independent banking.

Each opportunity is a fledgling relationship.

Our primary focus as a senior debt provider is making loans from $1 million to $100 million, and we can help connect you with an appropriate capital markets provider. If we’re not your initial solution, we may be the perfect match down the road as your business evolves. In the meantime, we can provide other financial services, such as commercial bank accounts, Treasury Management expertise and investment opportunities.

Bankers who know the business. On-staff petroleum engineers. Reserve-based loans. If that sounds intriguing to you, we invite you to find out more.
