Orion Exploration, L.L.C. and OEX-1, LLC are privately held exploration and production companies based in Tulsa, OK, which was founded to pursue horizontal coal bed methane (CBM) prospects in the Arkoma Basin. In 2004, Orion shifted focus to vertical and horizontally drilling Paleozoic-aged carbonate rocks in north-central Oklahoma. Currently, Orion is focused on the early-stage acquisition and drilling of large-scale internally generated prospects in the Mid-Continent. We use technology to reduce exploration risk in exploring rich, fertile basins where hydrocarbons are known to exist.
Orion’s staff has over 100 years of experience, including geologists, landmen, engineers and other technical front office personnel devoted to internal prospect generation and identification of potential drilling locations.
Orion’s current vertical and horizontal drilling exploration activity is focused on developing oil and gas reserves, from conventional and unconventional reservoirs, in several core areas, in both Oklahoma and Kansas.
