About Boulder

Experienced Leadership

Boulder’s management team has one driving motivation: to create value for shareholders by continuing to grow the Company’s producing assets while further improving technical execution and increasing capital efficiencies. We are an experienced team with a proven track record in oil and natural gas exploration, technical innovation, operations and disciplined financial management.


We are largely the same group that acquired, explored, proved up, operated and grew the Brazeau multi-zone Belly River play for four years before Boulder’s founding. As Boulder’s management team, we intend to continue growing through the drillbit by focusing on further developing our core asset at Brazeau and getting the most value out of the Belly River play.
