Company Summary

Upstart Oil and Gas was formed in Kentucky in 2010 to drill and acquire properties in the Central Basin of TN and KY. A relatively new oil play, we believe the venture represents tremendous alpha return potential. The area is covered with small high pressure fields ranging in size from 50,000 - 1,000,000+ bbls. The Management Team has been actively working in the Central Basin for the last 10 years.

After directing operations for several years, these highly productive fields were recently sold. Following these sales, Keith decided to pursue the opportunity of developing an oil field in the Central Basin of Tenessee and Kentucky.
