Jagged Peak Energy, formed in April 2013 in partnership with Quantum Energy Partners, is an active exploration and production company concentrating in the West Texas Permian Basin. Leaseholds from University Lands, grass-roots leasing, and an acquisition of 22, 000 exploitative acres places us in an optimal position to explore, develop and produce with a high return rate. Currently drilling our third well and re-completing some of the 22 vertical wells acquired in March of 2014, production currently approximates xx barrels a day.

The executive team, comprised of Joseph N. Jaggers-CEO & President, Gregory S. Hinds-COO, Bob Howard-CFO, and Mark Petry- VP of Land, has over 30 years of industry experience combined. Their previous execution and success rate is exceptional. The technical team has implemented an impressively aggressive and innovative drilling program which includes but is not limorizontal wells. The wells are costly, however they prove to be at a much higher rate of return. Production operations along with drilling and completing are what Jagged Peak Energy does very well. The oil-bearing formations in this basin are much thicker and are stacked atop each other promising continual growth.
