Berry Petroleum is an independent privately-held energy Company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and production of domestic oil and natural gas reserves primarily located in the San Joaquin Basin in California, the Uinta Basin in Utah, the Piceance Basin in Colorado, the Hugoton Basin in Kansas and the East Texas Basin in Texas.
The Company’s focus is on the responsible and safe exploration and development of oil and natural gas. Berry emphasizes the prudent maintenance of its existing assets by leveraging the application of technological innovation and knowledge base of its employees. The focus for the asset teams is to meet operational objectives while maintaining a safe working environment and recognizing the Company’s responsibility to its surrounding communities.
Berry Petroleum’s roots reach back to 1909 through its predecessor companies founded by C.J. Berry. Those ties are still evident from the operating areas, assets and even people that bridge the time and evolution of the first Berry entities to the current Berry Petroleum.
