OurVision

Our vision is to create long-term value for all stakeholders and to maximize investor returns through our strategy of acquiring, optimizing and managing existing natural gas and oil assets.

Our Goals
Strengthen our position as the premier conventional natural gas producer in the Appalachian Basin

Our growth and capital return framework stems from our unique business model and successful execution of straight-forward, low-risk and proven operating techniques. By recompleting untapped reserves in previously completed wells, deliver enhanced returns to our investors.

Grow our market share in the Appalachian Energy Market

We focus on acquiring existing long-life, low-decline producing wells and, at times, their associated midstream assets, and then efficiently managing the assets to improve or restore production, reduce unit operating costs, reduce emissions, and generate consistent Free Cash Flow

Expand the horizontal drilling program into unconventional reservoirs in Appalachia.

Leverage our vast acreage position and improve reserves in the vastly untapped but proven resources in the Marcellus and Upper Devonian Shales in West Virginia and Pennsylvania and the various sandstone formations in Kentucky.
