Areas of Operation

Midland Basin – focus has been on the Spraberry and Wolfcamp formations. Midland Basin is located just east of the Central Basin Platform and runs north to south from Crockett County to counties Lamb and Hale. Midland Basin geology is highly variable by location and zone, as the typical well completion in the basin involves commingling production from multiple stacked pay zones. Depending on the geographic region within the Basin, operators are targeting a variety of zones with vertical and horizontal completions. 

Delaware Basin  – Delaware Basin is a hydrocarbon rich sedimentary basin that lies within the Permian Basin. The Delaware Basin covers around 6.4 million acres in far West Texas and South Eastern New Mexico. It is located in an arid southwestern portion of the United States of America

Williston Basin  –   Williston Basin is a large intracratonic sedimentary basin in eastern Montana, western North Dakota, South Dakota, and southern Saskatchewan, that is known for its rich deposits of petroleum and potash.
