Recovery Energy Takes Its Name, Zeroes in on O&G Production

Formerly known as Universal Holdings, Recovery Energy has changed its name to reflect the company's focus on oil and gas production. Additionally, Recovery Energy is relocating its headquarters to Denver, Colorado where its new executive team is located.

"We changed the name of the company to Recovery Energy, Inc. to emphasize the company's new focus: acquiring and developing oil and gas properties in the United States," said Recovery Energy's CEO, Jeffrey Beunier. The company intends to concentrate on existing proven assets and utilize in-field drilling, recompletion, and secondary recovery activities to drive shareholder growth and value.

The oil and gas industry was significantly impacted by the unprecedented drop in commodity prices during late 2008 and into early 2009. Recovery Energy intends to capitalize on the recovery in the energy sector by utilizing the deep connections and talent of their executive team.
