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 Vision is to be recognized as the industry’s most successful acquisition and development company for our consistent track record of responsibly 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.

Jonah Energy partnered with Cadets of the Parker Civil Air Patrol Squadron to do a Bike Build at Beach Court Elementary in Denver.  The Cadet’s goal – “to transform youth into dynamic Americans and aerospace leaders” – which includes community events/support. Jonah Staff, cadets and kiddos enjoyed an afternoon of putting bikes together, fun challenges, and the joy of seeing 35 kids go home with Jonah-provided new bikes and helmets.

Jonah Energy and Savio House partnered up during the 2021 Holiday season to make a difference for low-income families in the Denver area that are struggling with mental and/or behavior issues and we will be partnering them again for the 2022 Holiday season.  Jonah Energy provided additional support in August to assist with back-to-school needs such as backpacks and school supplies.

In an ongoing effort to help our local senior citizens, each quarter Jonah Energy is sponsoring a free in-house dining lunch for a day at each of the senior centers in Sublette County
