About

  • Asset Buyout Partners is an industrial real estate investor seeking properties located in Norwegian oil and gas clusters on long term contracts to oil and gas counterparties. We focus on off-market and privately negotiated transactions, and will explore opportunities to structure transactions and lease contracts in ways not always open for traditional real estate investors.
     
    The company was founded late 2015 and made its first investment in January 2016. HitecVision, a leading private equity investor focused on the oil & gas industry, is the majority shareholder. The combined network and experience of Asset Buyout Partners and HitecVision provides us with intimate knowledge of the oil and gas industry. We are a professional landlord and seek lasting partnerships with our tenants.
     
    Asset Buyout Partners is centrally located in Oslo and presently employs seven professionals, supported by dedicated professionals from HitecVision during the initial build-up of the company.
