Our Team

Cortez’s founders bring years of experience in leasing and developing properties prospective for unconventional oil and gas. Between them, they have participated in most of the major resource plays discovered in the last few years, including the Barnett, Fayetteville, Marcellus, and Eagle Ford shales, among others. The founding partners have formerly worked for prominent independent oil and gas companies, as well as highly respected financial institutions. They bring with them a wide variety of experience well suited to this technically difficult, multidimensional, and constantly-evolving industry.
