We began in a prime location for fueling growth.

In the early 1990’s, the North Texas plains began rumbling with a revolution in oil and gas production. Drilling technologies and techniques, in particular horizontal drilling, changed the entire industry. Now vast new reservoirs can be tapped by horizontal drilling and produce far more oil, natural gas and gas liquids than anyone dreamed possible.

That’s where Aruba comes in. Right at ground zero of the revolution. We mastered these drilling techniques. Today, with hundreds of wells under our belt, very few do it as well.

Smack dab in the Barnett Shale.

We were among the first to master new technical production methods. Here, in a cluster of 18 counties stretching north, south and west of Dallas-Fort Worth, lies the shale play so rich, we expect it to continue producing for many years to come.

Today, Aruba is ranked the fifth largest operator in Wise County out of 117 companies – trailing only four multi-billion dollar companies. In Parker County, Aruba ranks number seven – behind six multi-billion dollar companies. Among independents, Aruba stands tall.
