About Treaty Energy Corporation

Treaty is engaged in the acquisition, development and production of oil and natural gas, primarily in the West Texas Permian Basin, but may expand this scope if suitable opportunities come to Treaty's attention. Treaty acquires and develops petroleum productive properties, many of which have "proven but undeveloped reserves" at the time of acquisition, that are economically beneficial and fit well into Treaty's program, but not strategic to large exploration-oriented oil and gas companies. This strategy provides Treaty with the proven assets to develop and produce oil and natural gas with tremendously decreased risk, cost and time involved in traditional exploration. Treaty's headquarters are located in Abilene, Texas. For more information go to:
