Management Team & Board of Directors →

Our focus is on innovation and continuous cost improvement in today’s unconventional resource revolution.

Ironbridge Gorge and the Iron Bridge itself, is located in Shropshire England and is recognized as one of the birthplaces of the Industrial Revolution.  It was here in 1709 that Abraham Darby perfected the technique of producing pig iron in a blast furnace fueled by coke rather than coal allowing for much cheaper production of iron.  The name reflects the Company’s focus on innovation and cost efficiency in the unconventional resource revolution.

Our team has drilled hundreds of multi-frac horizontal wells for two of the leading large E&Ps in Canada. With the massive pace of change in drilling and completion technology in the last few years, we believe that only this hands-on experience can produce the industry leading costs that are necessary to compete in today’s commodity price environment.
