A Tradition of Excellence
Forest Oil is a Denver-based independent oil and natural gas company focused on the acquisition, exploration, development, and production of oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas. The Company was founded in northwestern Pennsylvania in 1916, incorporated in 1924, and has traded publicly since 1969. Today, Forest primarily operates in three core regions located in the Texas Panhandle Area, the Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas, and the East Texas / North Louisiana Area.
Forest was established under the principles of creative thinking and personal integrity that are built through knowledge and judgment derived from experience. Guided by these founding principles, Forest today employs a talented team of technical, operational, and financial professionals utilizing the latest technological advancements in the industry to achieve long-term success. Our strategy consists of building shareholder value through a measured pace of organic growth while maintaining a balanced capital structure. We believe this can be accomplished through the development of our large inventory of oil and liquids-rich projects as we preserve margins by focusing on operational control and cost efficiencies.
