Our Story

Jonah Energy LLC was created in the spring of 2014 with the acquisition of producing assets within the Jonah Field in Sublette County, Wyoming.  Since inception we have strengthened our position in Wyoming through acquisition of Linn Energy’s Jonah and Pinedale Anticline assets and approval for development of the NPL/Jonah Extension project.  We are one of the largest privately-held natural gas producers in the US.

Our private investor group is led by TPG Capital LLC and includes EIG Global Energy Partners and management.

Our Vision is to be recognized as the industry’s most successful acquisition, development and exploitation company for our consistent track record of delivering exceptional operating and commercial performance in every facet of our business.

We create exceptional value for our investors and our people by acquiring oil and gas fields with unappreciated potential, then mobilizing the capital and talent necessary to fully realize that potential.

Our Operations

The Jonah Field

The Jonah Field was one of the largest onshore natural gas discoveries in the early 1990s, with an estimated original resource of 19.2 Tcf concentrated within an area of about 24,000 acres. We currently operate over 2,400 producing wells in the area and average approximately 550 mmcfe/day of gross production.

The NPL/Jonah Extension Project

The Normally Pressured Lance (NPL) or Jonah Extension Project encompasses 140,859 acres immediately south and west of the existing Jonah Field. Long-term development potential includes a maximum of 3,500 directionally drilled wells to produce natural gas and oil. The project, currently in an exploratory phase, includes significant environmentally sustainable practices.

Jonah Field was a world-class discovery, and the Jonah Energy team comes to work every day with the goal of maximizing the field's productive potential.
