Investment firm Riverbend Energy Group is considering the sale of oil and gas assets, worth approximately $2bn, to capitalise on surging commodity prices, Reuters reported, citing people familiar with the matter.

The firm is seeking interest from potential buyers for three of its oil and gas assets, including debt.

Comprising minority stakes in individual oil and gas wells, the three portfolios include Riverbend VI, Riverbend VI-B, and Riverbend VIII.

As part of the divestment plan, the firm is working with an undisclosed investment bank on the auction process for the assets in recent weeks, according to the sources.

The investment firm expects to attract interest from other financial investors who are seeking cash generated by oil and gas assets.

Riverbend VI owns a non-operated portfolio of nearly 150,000 net acres. It has a current net production of approximately 28,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day.
