Weil has advised Antin Infrastructure Partners (Antin) portfolio company, CATS Management Limited (CML) on its acquisition of a 65% interest in the Esmond Transportation System (ETS) from Premier Oil, Centrica and Perenco, which announced today. CML, based in Aberdeen and Teesside, manages Antin’s business in the North Sea and is focused on investing in critical long-life midstream infrastructure.
The Weil team was led by James MacArthur, who advised Antin on their acquisition of the Central Area Transmission System (CATS) in the Central North Sea. He was assisted by associates Max Oppenheimer and Richard Wright, with tax advice provided by partner David Irvine and associate Ellie Marques.
The ETS transaction caps a very busy first year for the Weil London Real Assets team, with mandates for a number of leading infrastructure investors. The team is led by James MacArthur (Corporate/Private Equity) and Paul Hibbert (Finance). They will be joined early in the new year by Real Estate partner, Anthea Bamford.
