We pride ourselves in our ability to respond quickly to any acquisition opportunity and then close quickly, no matter the complexity or size.

Growth and Performance
Our producing properties in the Uinta Basin represent significant growth for Finley over the past several years. The drilling of hundreds of wells has catapulted our growth in a low price environment.

One of our mantras since 1997 has been “borrow to buy, drill from free cash flow” before it was chic, as it is in today’s market. Our cashflows support our continuous drilling program.
