Company Profile

Baron Energy Inc. (“Baron” or the “Company”) (OTC Pink: BROE) is a publically-traded independent oil and natural gas company based in San Marcos, Texas. Baron is currently engaged in the management of a consortium of like-minded investors seeking to invest in non-operated oil and natural gas properties in South Texas. Baron provides petroleum management and business development services, technical and commercial expertise, and day-to-day operations for the portfolio properties.

  • Increased production from 3 Bopd to 15 Bopd
  • Increased potential future drilling locations from 1 to 9

Business Strategy and Plans for 2017

Baron seeks to leverage its seasoned management team and extensive industry experience to acquire and operate mature oil and gas properties with upside via workovers, recompletions, and drilling of new wells. The Company is aggregating a portfolio of properties (“South Texas Project”) with a production goal of 300-500 Bopd and a substantial number of future drilling locations. Management plans to monetize the portfolio in 2019. Baron began the South Texas Project in the fourth quarter 2015.

The Company has recently revised its 2017 operational plan to include drilling select new offset wells on some current properties. Baron projects that a successful two-well drilling program will significantly increase production with expected initial production rates of up to 100 Bopd per well. The proposed program is currently pending partnership approval and funding.
