In 2011 and 2012 Shale Exploration, L.L.C. (Shale), a division of GreeheyCo, was founded by Sam Tallis and Sid Greehey through leasing and acquisitions of more than 800,000 acres of resource plays from the Bakken shale to the Eagle Ford shale — and we’re not done yet.  Shale currently has operations in Montana, North Dakota, Texas, Wyoming, New Mexico, Louisiana, Colorado, South Dakota, Oklahoma, and more. Our philosophies are a tribute to our Texas culture in that we are always chasing oil and gas, no matter where we hang our hats at night.

Shale Exploration’s management and employees are men and women who are industry professionals that believe in doing it right or not doing it all. Following this mindset, in 2011 and 2012 Shale has proudly donated more than $500,000 in multiple states to charities and other benevolent causes such as: Montana Make-A-Wish, Mayfest, the Volunteer Firemen of Scobey, Leukemia sufferers, the Montana Rescue Mission Women’s and Family Shelter, and more. We believe in making a difference and wish the abundant resources of the industry, as a whole, would follow our lead.

We at Shale also believe in the education of our customers, clients, and potential partners. That is why we will always do our best to make sure everyone involved with us has an informed opinion on what’s happening. This mantra flows within our core values so much that last year, we donated to the children of Scobey by providing iPads to the public schools.

The core management team consists of former senior-level management members of highly successfully E&P companies with a broad base of experience in engineering, operations, and business development. We use state-of-the-art technology in all vertical and horizontal completions. This includes fracking, seismic 3-D, geochemistry, and our proprietary innovative seismic 4-D. Management is focused on pursuing targeted areas to acquire and exploit strategy primarily targeting the Williston Basin (Bakken Shale) in northeast Montana and various parts of North Dakota. Our current and primary project area is featured on the Shale Exploration website and is one of our most promising prospects. Shale’s Bakken – Three Forks prospect reflects Shale’s current commitment to the leasing and development of Daniels County, Montana.
