Monthly Press Releases from Shale Energy

Shale Energy has just released an article explaining why well-run O&G independents like Shale shouldn’t worry about oil prices. Smart companies should have a strategy that make money whether oil prices are high or low. The article explains why and should be of interest to anyone following the domestic oil patch.
According to Mr. L.P. Brown, president, “We don’t worry about what’s outside our control. Right now, the world O&G market still lives under a pricing umbrella controlled by OPEC. And there’s optimism that OPEC’s just-announced production quotas will stick, supporting higher prices. But you can’t build a strategy on luck or high oil prices. Our strategy is built on our distinctive competences. We make money for our partners, our investors, and ourselves no matter what the price.”

Mr. Brown is third generation oil and gas and leads the company, starting his career there in the 1980’s. Shale Energy is a premier independent O&G company that acquires, develops and manages lower-risk and long-lived proven reserves in Louisiana and Texas. The company is headquartered in Mandeville, Louisiana.

August 2nd, 2016|Comments Off on Charles Meeks, beloved friend and partner to Shale Energy International who is credited with discovering the billion barrel Jay Field.

07/29/16 – Jay, spread across 14,600 acres in the far western Florida Panhandle and a tiny nick of Alabama’s Escambia County, now supplies about 2,500 b/d of equivalent oil production — about 88% oil and 13% natural gas liquids. Jay Field is one of Florida’s biggest and oldest oil fields with 93 active wells. This is the passing of another great legend in the oil business. He will be greatly missed by friends and colleagues, R.I.P Charles Meeks.
