Operations

From project planning through production, we are dedicated to the consistent achievement of operational excellence.

Southeastern New Mexico

The Permian Basin is the most prolific United States oil-producing region. Explored and developed since the 1920s, it is still the nation’s most actively developed province. The region’s Delaware Basin is located west of the Central Basin Platform and south of the Northwest Shelf.

Santo’s current focus is on leveraging our experience in acquiring and developing assets in New Mexico’s Eddy and Lea counties where the northern Delaware Basin offers a target-rich setting with world-class volumes of oil in place. Our primary targets are sands in the oil-prone Bone Spring formation and sands and shales in the underlying Wolfcamp formation.

Other U.S. Activities

From 2010 through 2016, Santo aggressively pursued exploratory projects through partnerships with operators in the South Texas, East Texas, Rocky Mountain and onshore Gulf Coast areas, and we continue to explore and develop discoveries from those areas.
