About Our Operations

Our strategy is to focus on onshore, Lower 48 oil and natural gas plays with top-tier economic drilling, completion, and production opportunities. We seek to acquire top-tier acreage through leasing and strategic acquisitions. We seek to maximize the value of our assets through the application of the latest technologies and outstanding operational execution, with our employees being our most valuable asset. Finally, we strive to maintain a strong balance sheet through financial discipline and to achieve high returns by efficiently deploying capital to develop our assets.
