OKLAHOMA BRIEFS

Eagle Energy sells properties

Houston-based Midstates Petroleum Co. has closed on its $650 million move to buy all of Tulsa-based Eagle Energy LLC's oil and gas properties. The deal, announced in August, includes Eagle's developed and undeveloped acreage primarily in the now popular and liquids-rich Mississippian Lime trend of northern Oklahoma and southern Kansas.
