Pursuing Energy Development. Preserving The Environment.

Protégé Energy III is an independent oil and gas exploration and production company based in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Uniting years of experience with abundant technical expertise, we strive to achieve strong rates of return from investments in U.S. shale and unconventional plays – all in a safe, environmentally responsible manner. With a primary focus area in the South Texas Eagle Ford basin, we are seeking investment opportunities and mutually beneficial partnerships with leaseholders, mineral owners and other operators.


Protégé acquired their initial Eagle Ford position of 23,000 net acres in the West Asherton and Fashing fields from Newfield in September 2016. In 2017 Protégé grew its net production in the play by over 45 percent. As of year-end 2017, Protégé had 113 Eagle Ford wells producing 10,000 net BOEPD. Protégé acquired an additional 1,070 net acres and 9 operated wells in the Fashing field in March 2018.
