EIG Global Energy Partners has reached a deal with the TCW Group whereby EIG will publicly support the buyout of TCW by the Carlye Group.

After separating from TCW in December 2010, EIG retained its interest in a joint venture with TCW responsible for running a $4 billion energy investment fund. When the proposed TCW takeover was announced in August 2012, EIG filed a suit to block the transaction alleging that Carlyle, which also runs its own energy funds, will have access to otherwise sensitive and proprietary information about EIG's portfolio of investments.
