About Chief

A privately held, independent oil & gas company, Chief is engaged in the exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas reserves throughout the United States.

Social responsibility is a core value at Chief Oil & Gas, and we are proud to be able to give back to the communities where we work. Open and honest communication, a safe working environment, ethical business practices and good neighbor initiatives are all an important part of how we do business each and every day.

Chief's most recent focus has been the development of the Marcellus Shale, a formation that runs from the southern tier of New York, through the western portion of Pennsylvania into the eastern half of Ohio and through Maryland and West Virginia.
