Substantially all of our acreage is located in three counties in the Midland Basin: Howard, Midland and Glasscock.

Our properties are characterized by large, contiguous acreage blocks, which has enabled us to implement more efficient and cost-effective operating practices and to capture economies of scale. We seek to operate our properties so that we can continue to implement these efficient operating practices and control all aspects of our development program to efficiently develop our significant resource base.

Since our inception, we have operated up to eight drilling rigs simultaneously, and have drilled more than 200 gross operated vertical Wolfberry wells through April 15, 2013. This activity has allowed us to identify and de-risk a multi-year inventory of vertical drilling locations, while also identifying horizontal drilling locations in specific areas based on geophysical and technical data for future development.

Welcome to Athlon
Athlon Energy is an independent exploration and production company, headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, focused on the acquisition, development and exploitation of unconventional oil and liquids-rich natural gas reserves in the Permian Basin. Our drilling activity is currently focused on the low-risk vertical development of the Wolfberry play in the Midland Basin. Learn More...
