It's what sets us apart from other Oil and Gas Explorations and Operations companies. Amarillo Exploration, Inc. is an independently owned company, which enables us to run a tighter ship and means our exploration and operations are done more efficiently and effectively.

Amarillo Exploration, Inc.'s primary area of operation is the Texas Panhandle, Western Oklahoma, and Southwest Kansas, more commonly known as the Anadarko Basin. We also explore in other areas when exceptional opportunities arise.

The goal for our company is steady revenue growth and increasing reserves for ourselves and our Joint Venture Associates. We accomplish this by exploring credible oil and gas fields with relative low to moderate risk. Acquisitions also play a big part of growing our company as well as our investor's energy portfolios.

We pride ourselves in applying efficient, cost effective, daily operations to all our properties in order to maximize production. We call upon 30 years of associations with experienced contract field personnel, engineers, and geologists that are familiar with any particular geographic area in which we conduct business.

Our projects are financed with private equity partners on a Joint Venture basis. We do have investment opportunities and are receptive to new, qualified investors that may have an interest in oil and gas investments.
