Partnering with Crestview was transformational. It enabled us to build our team, expand our asset base and focus our strategy.

John Sanchez, President & CEO


Finding opportunity in out-of-favor basins

Crestview founded Silver Creek with B-29 Investments, LP, the investment firm led by senior advisor John Schmitz, to target overlooked and undervalued development assets in out-of-favor basins, such as the Arkoma Woodford. The company is also focused on bringing new completion technologies to decades-old fields.


The company has drilled multiple successful wells in each of its primary areas of operation. Production at these wells has exceeded expectations. We are also working with management on a successful land acquisition program, which is focused on core areas where the team can apply its peer leading operational expertise.

Taking advantage of the energy dislocation

We believe the current dislocation in energy represents an opportunity for Silver Creek. Crestview is working with management to identify ways to expand the business and acquire strategic assets.
