WHO WE ARE AND WHERE WE ARE GOING

Texas South has assembled the parts to be able to build a vibrant company for the benefit of all of our shareholders. We have shallow, development style projects in Texas that can support the opportunity to capitalize on the development of the giant subsalt projects developed by our partners offshore. Working Together, we are creating a company with a well-balanced portfolio of assets that will sustain our value in the short term and geometrically add to our value through the development of our offshore projects.

OUR HISTORY

Texas South is a young, growing company with a diverse range of large scope assets. It began with participation with a first class technical partner in sub-salt projects in the Gulf of Mexico and evolved to including excellent shallow supra-salt projects that became evident from the deeper work. More recently, the company acquired an interest in a number of onshore development style projects that are adding reserves and cash flow while maintaining the scope and scale of the company’s plans.

CORE PRINCIPLES
