Our Objective

Management Team

In forming Flatirons Resources LLC, the company’s management brought together a group of individuals that have experience in a wide range of oil and gas activities.  These individuals have experience in both mid-stream and up-stream projects that provide Flatirons with the expertise needed to find creative ways to develop and get products to market, assuring the economics of company managed properties. By focusing our resources and talent Flatirons strives to acquire properties quickly, and to drill and complete them more efficiently than what can be accomplished by larger companies that try to dominate a play with a decade long drilling program.  Our team approach to developing new project areas focuses on involving the management team to capitalize on the breadth of experience of our company team.  Flatirons does not acquire properties to add them to an acreage inventory or to let the activity come our way, rather we move quickly to identify the best development program to maximize the property’s values to Flatirons and our stakeholders.  Our staff’s wide range of experience in unconventional plays, with expertise in every phase of oil and gas development, gives us the edge we need to compete in oil and gas development projects.  We pride ourselves in having the capacity to tap into state of the art technology, using 3D seismic and horizontal drilling where appropriate while spending our dollars wisely to maximize value.  Our objective is to take geologic concepts on raw undeveloped lands and turn them into productive oil and gas fields.
