About Us

Founded in 2012, Kimmeridge Energy is an asset manager focused purely on the energy sector. As industry specialists, we seek to detect and exploit long-term trends to create value for our investors.

Industry Knowledge

The Kimmeridge leadership team consists of individuals with a leading record of understanding how the oil and gas industry functions. Our backgrounds include industry roles, geology, consulting and investing.

Geological Insight

Kimmeridge believes that a deep understanding of geology can provide a competitive edge. We seek to invest in projects where we see geological upside, based on quantitative analysis. Our expertise makes us an involved and knowledgeable partner for industry players.

Direct Ownership

Kimmeridge’s structure eliminates layers of management by investing directly in promising assets. This is enabled by its considerable in-house expertise and experience in geological evaluation, land acquisition and engineering. Our direct ownership and centralized operations model reduce performance fees and costs.
