Growing in a new play

About the Play


Establishing a growing business.

We have been operating in the Northern Delaware basin, which is located within the greater Permian area, since closing on two major acquisitions in 2017.

Our focus has been to strategically advance our position, progress early delineation and development of our acreage, improve our cost structure and secure midstream solutions. We have the majority of our acreage in Eddy and Lea counties primarily in the Wolfcamp and Bone Spring New Mexico plays.

A Clear Approach
Our strategy is focused on lower cost, higher margin U.S. resource plays. With operations in four of the best oil-rich basins in the U.S., we are positioned for long term growth.
