KKR & Co. (NYSE: KKR), the private-equity firm run by Henry Kravis and George Roberts, finished raising $2 billion to invest in oil and gas assets, according to a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

KKR Energy Income and Growth Fund was started with capital from New York-based KKR and did three deals before gathering money from outside investors, said the person, who requested anonymity because the details haven’t been announced. KKR initially sought $1.5 billion for the strategy, people familiar with the plans said last year. Kristi Huller, a spokeswoman for the firm, declined to comment on fundraising.
