Extraction Oil & Gas is proud to be a Colorado-based, independent exploration and production company. We are committed to safely and responsibly producing the energy that powers our modern and growing economy.
We were founded in 2012 by President and CEO Matt Owens and an innovative and forward-looking technical team. In the early years, with just a small leasehold in Weld County, the team stepped out to start Extraction.
A few short years later, in 2016, Extraction became the first U.S. E&P company to successfully launch an IPO in two years, defying expectations.
Now, Extraction has grown into one of the largest E&P companies in Colorado, operating in seven counties and employing nearly 250 people between Front Range offices. We like to say we’re not your grandfather’s oil company and we take immense pride in doing things differently. It’s a better approach for us and for the communities where we live and work.
Though our team has grown, our values and culture have stayed the same. We believe that companies can operate both sustainably and profitably. In fact, we believe this is the definition of a successful company. Our team aims to go above and beyond in every aspect of our work, not because we have to, but because it’s the right thing to do.
