Epi-V is a specialist fund established to invest in the upstream oil and gas services sector.

Epi-V initially invests £2million - 10million of growth capital in UK and international businesses developing technology-based application solutions that will meet the present and future challenges of oil and gas production.

The fund will target businesses developing “disruptive” technologies which have the potential to revolutionise existing processes and which will have significant future value to international oil and gas operations. The fund will target businesses across the oil and gas life cycle - geological surveying, exploration, production, remedial services and site abandonment.

The Epi-V team are active investors and use an innovative, scalable value creation methodology which they apply to businesses to maximise shareholder value growth and speed up the time taken to effectively develop and market the technology.

In August 2007, LDC committed £50million to Epi-V's first fund, and a further £50million commitment in July 2011 for the second fund.
