Colgate Energy (“Colgate” or the “Company”) is a private, independent oil and natural gas company based in Midland, Texas. We focus on exploration and production of oil and gas properties in the core of the Delaware Basin of West Texas and Southeast New Mexico.
Colgate was founded in 2015 by Will Hickey and James Walter through equity commitments from Pearl Energy Investments and Natural Gas Partners.
The strategy of the Company is to maximize returns to stakeholders through responsible and disciplined management of our oil and gas properties to generate consistent free cash flow. We leverage our technical and managerial expertise to identify and assemble a portfolio of capital-efficient, high-return properties with attractive economic profiles. We also pride ourselves on being responsible stewards of the resources we have been provided.
Our Company has grown through thoughtful leasing programs, joint ventures, acquisitions, strategic mergers and disciplined long-term development of our properties. We currently have a multi-disciplinary, highly functioning team of over 70 employees that manage over 100,000 net leasehold acres.
