Blackbeard Operating


Blackbeard Operating, LLC is a privately held exploration and production company established in 2014 with an equity commitment from Natural Gas Partners. We seek to grow through both acquisitions of new assets and the development of our existing assets through low risk drilling, recompletion, and workover programs. Since our founding, we have acquired fields in three of the premier basins in the continental United States and are continually looking for new opportunities to grow by targeting acquisitions in areas with stacked pay and existing production.

Blackbeard is committed to creating and maintaining a culture of excellence; we are devoted to always operating safely and with integrity. We also strive to foster relationships with like-minded individuals, companies, and vendors in order to add value in all facets of our daily operations. We are continuously looking to establish new business partnerships to accelerate deal flow and diversify the risks associated with finding and developing oil and gas assets.

With both highly motivated and innovative technical personnel and a premier asset base, we are creating an investment for our partners that will deliver high-yield growth for years to come.
