US Energy’s founder and the generations before him have been drilling, producing, and operating oil and gas wells within the Appalachian Basin since the late 1800’s. As a leader in natural gas production within the Appalachian Basin, US Energy has grown its lease hold to over 250,000 acres. We currently operate and produce over 1000 oil and gas wells within Kansas, West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
Our focus is to continuously grow our acreage position while maximizing the recovery of oil and gas reserves from our resources, while considering the environmental footprint we leave behind.
US Energy has successfully drilled, completed, and produced over 100 horizontal oil and gas wells within conventional sandstones. This method of recovery minimizes the impact that our operations have on the environment and maximizes recovery of our resources. Our future development will focus on horizontal methods.
With the knowledge we have learned through experience and the arrival of new technologies, we will continue to improve our horizontal drilling, completion technology, and production methods to maximize resource recovery and minimize environmental impact.
