Henry Resources



Operational History

Since the discovery and development of the Wolfberry in the early 2000s, Henry has deployed over $2 billion of capital in the drilling and completing of more than 1300 wells. Much of that activity was, and continues to be, in partnership with major oil companies like Chevron. In addition, Henry has had many successful joint venture partnerships with public and private independent oil companies and private equity firms over the years.


Recent Operational Stats

Operated acreage positions in both the Midland and Delaware Basins

  • 27,000 Gross Operated Acres
  • 35,000 Gross Operated BOEPD


Henry consistently runs 1-2 horizontal rigs and will add or reduce rig count depending on company cash flows and business opportunities and/or lease obligations.  Our focus is to maintain a cash flow neutral spend rate while meeting all asset-level obligations and growing company rate and reserves through the drill bit. 


We remain acquisitive for high-quality projects in both the Midland and Delaware Basins. Our preferred deal structure allows for a ~40% operated working interest to Henry.
