The founders of Prairie Oil & Gas believe success can be achieved through trust and respect. Prairie was founded on May 22, 2015. Soon after, the industry endured one of the biggest downturns in recent history. Within the first year of Prairie’s existence, the price of oil dropped more than fifty percent, bottoming out under $30 per barrel in early 2016. The founders worried Prairie was destined to fizzle, but with the need to provide for their families, failure was not an option.
Prairie’s first home was a bedroom office, where the founders worked long hours to grow the business through difficult times. Determination to succeed moved the company forward. That same commitment to success remains a key component of the Prairie culture today.
Making the most of opportunities to learn and be mentored, the Prairie team has continuously grown in the face of adversity and outperformed goals. Prairie’s performance is largely attributable to quality team members and the hard work and creative ideas they provide. Building on a key strength in obtaining ground floor leases, the relationships eventually followed. Prairie emphasizes strengthening existing relationships and cultivating new ones. Company leaders enjoy their work and look forward to many more years of success.
At Prairie, we endeavor to be the company where every person feels comfortable leasing their minerals. From grandparents to industry experts, our clients are treated with fairness and respect. It’s the right thing to do, and it also means they often recommend us to friends and family. Our goal is to have mineral owners think of Prairie first when making decisions about their minerals.
