Enterprise Products Partners LP agreed to buy Navitas Midstream Partners LLC from Warburg Pincus LLC for $3.25 billion in cash to add natural gas pipeline and processing assets in the Permian Basin, the world’s most prolific shale basin.

The acquisition, Enterprise’s largest since 2014, will expand the company’s reach into the Midland Basin, part of the Permian, to include gas processing and natural gas liquids. Drilling activity in the Midland Basin represents about 20% of active onshore drilling rigs in the U.S., according to Enterprise.
