Robert L. Bayless, Producer LLC operates approximately 150 wells in the San Juan, Paradox, Piceance and Sand Wash basins of New Mexico, Colorado, and Utah.  The majority are natural gas wells in the prolific sandstone and coal gas plays of the San Juan Basin.  In addition, Bayless owns nonoperated working interests in about 600 wells in these basins and in the Uinta, Powder River and Green River basins of Utah and Wyoming.

Future growth will continue to come from these core areas and new ventures in the United States and Australia.  Bayless is actively acquiring exploration acreage in several prospective basins.

Bayless owns a royalty interest in the highly-prospective Beetaloo Basin in Australia through its affiliate, Territory Oil & Gas.  Bayless took exploration permits in this remote, frontier area and developed a series of structural and unconventional shale and tight gas plays.  Over 600km of seismic data has now been acquired and one well has been drilled to over 2700 m.  It will be completed this year and additional exploration is planned by Hess Corporation, which recently announced its farm-in of much of this acreage.
