We are an independent exploration and production company focused on the acquisition, development, and exploitation of unconventional oil and liquids-rich natural gas reserves in the Permian Basin. The Permian Basin spans portions of Texas and New Mexico and consists of three primary sub-basins: the Delaware Basin, the Central Basin Platform, and the Midland Basin. Substantially all of our acreage is located in the Northern Midland Basin in Martin, Midland, Upton, Howard, and Glasscock counties. We are a returns focused organization and have targeted vertical and horizontal development of the Wolfberry play in the Midland Basin because of its favorable operating environment, consistent reservoir quality across multiple target horizons, long-lived reserve characteristics, and high drilling success rates. Our drilling activity is currently focused on the low-risk vertical development of stacked pay zones, including the Clearfork, Spraberry, Wolfcamp, Cline, Strawn, Atoka, and Mississippian formations, which we refer to collectively as the Wolfberry play, as well as the horizontal development of these formations.
Our properties are characterized by large, contiguous acreage blocks, which have enabled us to implement more efficient and cost-effective operating practices and to capture economies of scale. We seek to operate our properties so that we can continue to implement these efficient operating practices and control all aspects of our development program to efficiently develop our significant resource base.
