About Zona Energy
Zona Energy, Inc. was formed in early 2018 as a portfolio company of a family office focused on a generational opportunity in the independent oil and natural gas industry focused on the acquisition, development, exploration and exploitation of unconventional, onshore oil and natural gas reserves in the Permian Basin in West Texas.
Our acreage is in the Permian basin, one of the major producing basins in the United States, characterized by an extensive production history, a favorable operating environment, mature infrastructure, long reserve life, multiple producing horizons, enhanced recovery potential and a large number of operators.
We began operations in June 2018 with our acquisition of a leasehold interest in 3,915 acres on the LaEscalera Ranch in the Permian Basin. As of December 31, 2019, our total acreage position is 2,700 acres. → VISIT LA ESCALERA RANCH
Our business model is different and unique to the industry. We have studied the energy industry and are importing strategies and philosophies from other industries that have to date been sparingly used in the field of oil and gas.
We control large acreage positions with a cost basis lower than any other oil and gas company. We avoid the risks implicit in the exploration, production, transportation, refining and marketing of hydrocarbons.
We monetize the acreage by acting as a lease bank. We sell acreage either for cash or through seller-financing at significant profits to limited partnerships controlled by reputable operators who otherwise would not have access to our prime acreage positions and who have expertise and experience with different formations and drilling environments in our acreage positions. We match these partnerships with networks of investors who fund the acreage purchase and drilling of wells.
We have key metrics in place to assure controlled growth with quality partners.
