Company Profile

CrudeX is an oil and gas exploration, development and production company formed in 2011. The company acquires oil and gas projects of merit and develops those projects to their full potential by applying low-cost operating practices and, where appropriate, using both conventional and innovative methods to enhance production and maximize reservoir drainage. When costs are reduced and the efficiency of a well is increased, there is a greater chance of enhanced profitability.

CrudeX is focused on:

  • Developing drilling prospects in-house, retaining a carried interest to casing point.
  • Drilling offset wells, retaining a majority of the working interest.
  • Developing secondary recovery (Waterflood and C02 injection) projects to increase production by re-working existing producing, or previously producing wells.
  • Developing proven undeveloped zones (behind pipe) in existing wells.
  • Acquiring currently producing oil and gas wells.
  • Completing projects and acquiring 3D data where warranted/available.


CrudeX draws on a team that has the experience that can only come from generations of extensive oil and gas exploration and production experience. Combine this with corporate and financial expertise, and experience in other real world ventures, and you have a winning formula.
