Our Partnership

Tailwater Capital LLC is a highly specialized middle market private equity firm focused exclusively on the energy industry.

Tailwater has a strong history of creating solutions oriented, value-added partnerships with experienced management teams to invest growth equity across the midstream and upstream sectors. With a well-established track record consisting of more than 100 transactions in the upstream and midstream sectors representing $18.8 billion of value, the firm believes that alignment of interests and a long-term partnership approach are two of the key components to creating a strong foundation for a successful investment.

A “one-size-fits-all” approach to private equity often risks falling short of achieving this goal, and a focus on alignment from the start makes Tailwater Capital a preferred source of private equity capital for leading energy entrepreneurs.

EMG is the management company for a series of specialized private equity funds.  The firm was founded by John Raymond (majority owner and CEO) and John Calvert in 2006.  EMG focuses on investing across various facets of the global natural resource industry including the upstream and midstream segments of the energy complex.
