Oregon Public Employees Retirement Fund (PERF) has approved a $200m (€184.1m) commitment to EnCap Flatrock Midstream Fund V, a fund seeking to raise $3bn to invest in oil and gas infrastructure in the US.

Rex Kim, the chief investment officer for the Oregon Investment Council, said in a meeting document that the pension fund is placing $150m directly into EnCap Flatrock Midstream’s latest fund and another $50m into Fund V’s sidecar co-investment vehicle.

The Oregon Investment Council declined a request for further comment.

EnCap Flatrock Midstream’s predecessor fund which closed in 2018, raised $3.25bn.

Fund V will target assets like pipelines, gathering systems, natural gas processing units, storage terminals, infrastructure related to hydrogen and biofuels.

Oregon PERF has also approved a $251m commitment directly into Global Infrastructure Partners V and an additional $99m for the fund’s co-investment sidecar fund.
