On June 28, 2019, Northleaf Capital Partners ("Northleaf") announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with CSV Midstream Solutions Corp. ("CSV"), through which Northleaf will acquire 100% of CSV, including CSV's Resthaven gas processing facility and Pipestone South compressor station. The deal comes alongside CSV's acquisition of the Karr 6-18 natural gas facility from Paramount Resources, a liquids-focused energy firm based in Alberta, in a C$470 million deal. CSV will pay C$330 million in cash plus C$140 million in capital improvements. The acquisition comes as part of Northleaf’s strategy for seeking opportunities of stable, long-term returns, which is offered by the quality of the underlying resources of CSV Midstream’s assets.

CSV is a Calgary-based company that  offers complete midstream solutions and innovative business models for natural gas and natural gas liquids processing.
