The company's current oil and gas properties are located in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming, New Mexico, Montana, North Dakota, and Mississippi. West Texas and the Panhandle of Oklahoma are the company's largest operating regions. Current production is 1,500 BBL/D.

The company thrives as a result of its opportunistic, entrepreneurial culture, and has attracted select, high-impact personnel from a variety of oil companies and Wall Street firms. Company employees have the opportunity to involve themselves in a broad range of the oil and gas development processes, providing constant challenge and growth opportunities. Direct exposure to top management insures a rewarding, non-bureaucratic work environment.
