Private Operator in the Permian Basin

Recorded on February 2, 2022

In episode 39 of the PetroNerds podcast, Trisha Curtis sits down with Ryan Keys, CEO of Triple Crown Resources.  Triple Crown is a private operator in the southern Midland Basin with 44,000 acres. 

Ryan offers a very candid view of what it is like to be a private operator in the basin and the serious cost pressures facing operators.  Inflation and rising costs and the lack of labor and skilled labor are beginning to bite operational efficiency. 

Trisha and Ryan talk about the oil market, oil prices, hedging, inflation, and a myriad of other topics.  They also talk about Triple Crown’s position in the basin and the uniqueness in being in an off-the-cuff play that fewer folks are interested in, characteristic of many private operators across the US today. This is a fantastic and informative conversation and a must-listen-to episode of the PetroNerds podcast.
