HOUSTON – Pickering Energy Partners (PEP), a Houston-based energy financial services firm, today announced a merger with Heikkinen Energy Advisors (“Heikkinen”), an investment advisor providing high-quality insights across all sectors of the energy industry, including Exploration and Production, Oilfield Services, Midstream, Energy Transition, Mobility, and Technology. The new partnership builds on Pickering Energy Partners’ expertise in traditional energy and solidifies its role in Energy Transition subsectors.

Together, PEP and Heikkinen have hundreds of years of combined experience, providing clients with the deepest insights and counsel in the energy industry. “Bringing the Heikkinen team on board will enhance our traditional energy insights and focus our renewable energy expertise, allowing us to offer even greater value to clients across all energy subsectors, from traditional to renewables,” said Dan Pickering, Chief Investment Officer of Pickering Energy Partners. “Our two teams have more combined energy experience (including ESG) than anyone else in the sector. Add to that Heikkinen’s longstanding relationships across the industry and you see the creation of an energy powerhouse.”

“We are excited to be joining forces with PEP and are confident that our combined experience enables us to bring clients the most comprehensive investment advice in the industry,” said David Heikkinen, CEO of Heikkinen Energy Advisors. “The merger will provide greater opportunities to exploit growth opportunities in oil and gas, the energy transition, and the technology that enables both.”

The Pickering Energy Partners and Heikkinen Energy Advisors merger is the latest evolution from PEP of the firm’s offerings focused on the energy landscape. The merger comes on the heels of PEP’s establishment of a Consulting team and a partnership with MERGE Electric Fleet Solutions, a company that will help businesses and municipalities electrify and finance their vehicle fleets. Earlier in the year, PEP also merged with SailingStone, an investment firm with a long history of investing in both energy transition and global natural resources public equities
