Welcome to Protégé Energy III LLC
Protégé Energy III is a Tulsa based oil & gas company focused on acquiring and developing assets in the domestic onshore basins of the United States. Protégé I was founded in 2004, Protégé II was founded in 2008, and Protégé III was founded in 2013 through partnerships with EnCap Investments. Protégé III intends to grow the enterprise through investing capital in both conventional as well as unconventional plays that yield attractive risk-adjusted rates of return.
Our experienced management team has diverse technical backgrounds in the acquisition, exploration, and development of oil and gas reserves including horizontal drilling, recompletions, reservoir stimulations, artificial lift, waterfloods and enhanced recovery in multiple basins. This experience is leveraged in developing and extending producing assets in trend plays that require technical scrutiny in both the evaluation and execution phases of development.
Although we are experienced in many basins, our current focus areas are the Permian Basin, South Texas, Mid-Continent (Oklahoma & Texas Panhandle), and the Marcellus/Utica Shale plays in the Appalachian basin. We are currently seeking investment opportunities in these areas and strive to form partnerships with leaseholders, mineral owners, other operators, and partners that build value through win-win scenarios.
