Exponential Growth

We recognize the increasingly prominent role natural gas will have in our country’s future and seek to advance the Appalachian region as a major player in the energy industry.

Leader in Natural Gas Production Growth in WV

As one of the top producers of natural gas in West Virginia, NNE prides itself in being a leader in safely growing natural gas production in the Appalachian region. Most important to NNE’s mission is stewardship of our community’s well-being and the environment in which we live, while extracting natural gas in the most secure and methodical ways, using the most advanced practices available.

“Mike John and the management team at NNE have done an amazing job at navigating the challenges of the commodity price decline with a relentless focus on costs and well level economics. The Company has grown substantially in recent years to having over 100 wells online with nearly 400mcfd of gross production and is well capitalized by its lenders and equity investors to continue its growth trajectory from this point forward.”
