Our History

US Energy’s founder and the generations before him, have actively been producing, operating, and drilling oil and gas wells within Pennsylvania’s Appalachian Basin since the late 1800’s. Today US Energy operates and produces over 900 Upper Devonian gas wells in Pennsylvania, holding over 80,000 acres. Our company is proud to be one of the top leaders in Upper Devonian natural gas production within our state.

US Energy has successfully drilled over 100 horizontal wells in the conventional sandstone formations of Pennsylvania. In 2015 our development team was tasked with finding horizontal oil prospect. The project landed our operations across state lines in Ohio. There we introduced our tried, tested, and proven horizontal drilling technologies. We targeted and successfully drilled, completed, and produced 18 conventional horizontal oil wells, and are pioneering new technologies as we continue our program. We are excited to expand our Ohio project to other prospective oil bearing formations that are located within our partnership acreage which totals over 170,000 gross acres.
