Navigating complexity through customized engineering and rigorous analytics

UpCurve Energy was formed in 2015 with an initial equity commitment of $100 Million from Post Oak Energy Capital. Our goal is to acquire acreage and existing wells and optimize production through a combination of recompletions, new development, and infill development. The core team of ex-ConocoPhillips colleagues has extensive experience in unconventional development and a demonstrated track record in horizontal refracturing, which we will utilize to create significant value.

UpCurve is focused on mature unconventional plays, such as the Eagle Ford, where it has extensive development experience, and the Haynesville, Bakken, and Permian, among others. UpCurve will pursue acquisitions of producing wells and acreage by means of cash-purchase as well as drill and recompletion farm-in’s.
