“Chris and his team have acquired an attractive group of production and midstream assets in a very short time period. I’m excited about joining the team and I hope to bring value by maximizing commodity sales netbacks and assisting in the evaluation of upstream and midstream acquisition opportunities”, said Brent Breon.
