Mission, Goals and Values
Create an oil and gas enterprise with at least 100 million
barrels of oil or equivalent through unique exploration,
development and enhancement opportunities. Combine
diverse experience and skills with new and proven effective
technologies, to optimize returns and minimize risks.
Innovate to create mutually rewarding financing rela-
tionships, that enhance the creation, maintenance and
growth of the enterprise. We experience appropriate limited
risks, coupled with material and significant participation in
results achieved. The funding providers realize material
and significant returns in excess of their risks. Our financial
partners feel fairly treated at all times and amply rewarded,
and are thus eager to provide continued financing.
Assemble, champion and support a creative, experi-
enced, talented and ethical professional team, who enjoy
working together cooperatively. The team uses interdisci-
plinary skills, expertise and abilities to innovatively create
value. Our environment enables the team to participate in
the value created.
Be regarded as fair, competent and honorable in our
dealings with land and mineral owners, suppliers, vendors,
and regulatory agencies. Be admired as capable, innovative
and successful by others in the oil industry and by financial
Be principally involved as significant players in a limited
number of large plays, which allows us to concentrate
efforts and maximize returns. Initial and subsequent efforts
will concentrate on the 20 percent of the opportunities that
provide 80 percent of the value. Five million barrels or
more is optimum, and a minimum operating criteria for
consideration of a prospect is one million barrels.
Consider the acquisition, promotion, development
and/or operation of smaller opportunities when they can be
used to facilitate the maintenance of an effective operating
group and the funding organization. These smaller oppor-
tunities will also be considered for trading materials to use
for obtaining prospects more conducive to the larger goals
of the enterprise.
