Founded in 2008, Parsley Energy is an independent oil and natural gas company with operations in the Permian Basin, where we develop unconventional oil and natural gas reserves. As we efficiently and responsibly grow reserves, production, and cash flow by developing our liquids rich resource base, we seek to create value for shareholders, employees, energy consumers, and the communities in which we work.
Over the past several years we have grown - primarily through the drill bit - from a two-person start-up to a large scale operation that operates several hundred wells. With a substantial inventory of vertical and horizontal drilling locations in the prolific core of the Midland Basin, we look forward to continued growth at superior rates of return.
