A “dream team” of five oil and gas veterans has reunited to launch San Antonio-based Silverback Exploration II LLC, an energy company with $500 million at its disposal.

The exploration and production company announced its formation early Monday morning along with a $500 million in private equity commitment from EnCap Investments LP.

Silverback Exploration II was created by five out of the six executives who founded San Antonio-based Silverback Exploration LLC, a small but nimble oil company that made a name for itself in the Permian Basin of West Texas with wells that were still profitable at low commodity prices.

Denver-based Centennial Resource Development Inc. (NASDAQ: CDEV) (NASDAQ: CDEVW) and its affiliates bought Silverback’s Permian Basin assets in a $855 million deal that closed just before New Year’s Eve.
