David Capobianco, CEO of Five Point Energy and Chairman of the Board of WaterBridge, said "In 2016, Five Point Energy funded the formation of WaterBridge with a well-defined strategy of being a first mover in progressively addressing the produced water needs of the Permian Basin. With the addition of Centennial's produced water handling assets to WaterBridge's network, the company has expanded the capabilities of its system and firmly established itself as the largest pure play water midstream company in the industry." Mr. Capobianco continued, "The capacity and redundancy offered by our systems will continue to be instrumental in supporting current and future customers' development programs in the Southern Delaware Basin."

Jason Long, Co-President and COO of WaterBridge stated, "Today's announced transaction represents another key milestone for WaterBridge, further validating our unique value proposition and industry leading platform. Centennial has been an important partner to us from the very beginning and is widely regarded as one of the best operators in the Permian. We are very excited to grow our relationship to handle all of Centennial's Southern Delaware produced water."
