Samson Resources is an oil and natural gas company that specializes in exploration, development and production. Samson Resources land-based assets include approximately two million acres in basins across the US.

Samson operates its business from its headquarters Tulsa, Oklahoma, and has other offices in Denver Colorado, and The Woodlands, Texas. The business is separated into three divisions, the Rockies, Mid-Continent and East Texas, to manage where most of its assets are located.

The Rockies division of Samson Resources manages assets in a region that reaches from New Mexico to the Canadian border. This region includes oil, liquids and gas producing assets in the Williston, Powder River, Green River and San Juan basins. The Mid-Continent division includes Samson Resources assets in Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas and Arkansas. The East Texas division features oil and liquids-rich assets in east Texas and northern Louisiana, including resources in the Cotton Valley, Travis, Peak, and Haynesville/Bossier Shale.

Samson Resources was purchased by Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co in 2011 for $7.2 billion. Unfortunately, due to the industry’s low crude oil prices, Samson Resources has had some financial woes in recent years. Samson filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy in September of 2015.
