Venus Exploration, Inc. applies advanced geoscience technologies for the purpose of increasing shareholder value through the discovery of oil and natural gas reservoirs in the United States.
Venus Exploration?s heritage dates back to the early days of energy exploration, when the Ames family drilled its first oil well in Oklahoma in 1912. During 85 years as a privately owned independent, Venus predecessors discovered, produced and sold interests in millions of barrels of oil from some of the most prolific fields in America. Today, Gene Ames, Jr., a geologist, heads Venus' management group at work with an industry-recognized technical team in development of exploratory prospects and leads. The company focuses its exploration in two core areas: the Expanded Yegua Trend of the Texas: Louisiana Gulf Coast and the Bossier / Cotton Valley Play of East Texas & Louisiana.
