South Texas Projects

Since 2010 Emerald Bay has focused on the exploration, development and optimization of oil opportunities in South Texas. The Company’s production comes from four key counties within South Texas: Medina, Bexar, Atascosa and Guadalupe. Within these counties Emerald Bay and its partners have established cost-effective drilling and completion programs despite low commodity prices. Management’s thirty years of experience in South Texas has enabled them to establish strong relationships with regional service companies, creating an edge over its peers.

It has been a very busy time for Emerald Bay in South Texas. Over the past two years, Emerald Bay took advantage of the improved visibility in the industry and became part of the M&A landscape, aggressively pursuing acquisitions of existing production and new premium drilling locations. And while Emerald Bay’s technical team continues to assess additional targets, the Company is now validating its acquisitions with excellent “shows” of oil and starting the next phase of development in its Wooden Horse and Nash Creek projects.
