Our Company

Dale Operating Company is an independent and entrepreneurial company that exists to find and acquire oil and gas reserves.

Our focus is finding and acquiring oil and gas reserves in world-class reservoirs

In-place and experienced land teams, supported by our comprehensive administrative systems and personnel, acquire mineral interests, leasehold interests, and non-operated working interests in the targeted “core” of the best plays in the country.

By selectively acquiring these assets in premier resource basins driven by experienced, fiscally-strong and well-respected operators, our approach provides a way to strategically create value while managing both geological and financial risk.
