HOUSTON, July 29, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Targa Resources Corp. (NYSE: TRGP) (“Targa” or the “Company”) announced today that one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries has completed the previously announced acquisition of Lucid Energy Delaware, LLC (“Lucid”) for $3.55 billion.

Lucid’s Delaware Basin footprint overlays some of the most economic crude oil and natural gas producing acreage in North America.
