Chief Among Them

Chief Among Them

In a 2019 article for D Magazine, Texas Wildcatter Trevor Rees-Jones self-described as “one of the hardest-headed people in the world,” crediting his stubborn streak for seeing him through the worst of oil and gas times. He launched Chief Oil & Gas in the late 90s, arriving early in the Barnett Shale which soon became the center of one of largest oil booms in U.S. history. Within eight years, Chief became the second-largest operator and fracker in the Barnett, and in 2006 Rees-Jones sold his assets there for $2.63 billion. Then, the mighty Marcellus called his name. Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest news surrounding Chief Oil & Gas—one of the nation’s largest privately-owned gas producers—now said to be exploring a sale of its Marcellus position for more than $3 billion. Assets include 600,000 acres in northeastern Pa., and 1+ BCFD—more than 1% of all U.S. gas supply. Right timing seems to follow this former bankruptcy attorney who traded a court docket for a drilling rig, and we can’t wait to see where he lands next.

United Energy Makes a Bold Prediction

Plano, Texas-based United Energy is on a growth streak, gobbling up more assets in Okla., and Kans., where it expects to become one of the top operators in the Cherokee Basin before year end. Reese Energy Consulting today is following the latest announcement from United, which now will make its second acquisition since August. The latest purchase from former Tulsa-based Red Fork Energy includes a 140-mile natural gas pipeline in Wagoner County, Okla., with a capacity of 20 MCFD; a 5,000+ acres leasehold; and 89 company-owned wells. The transaction price was not disclosed. This follows United Energy’s combination deal a little more than two months ago with the buy-out of Okla.-based Entransco Energy that netted the company 250+ Coalbed Methane Gas (CBM) wells, 32,000 acres, and 118 miles of gathering pipe. Along for the ride was a 49% ownership stake in an additional 200,000 acres of non-operated oil and gas leases, 2,200+ wells, and 1,000+ miles of gas pipe. At the same time, United acquired the previously known Rogers County (Okla.,) Coal Seam Project from Ala.-based Montclair Energy, which included 80 wells and 10,000 acres of CBM development.
