Scott A. Rovira, vice president of well construction at Endeavor Energy Resources LP, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.
Headquartered in Midland, Texas, Endeavor Energy Resources has one of the largest land positions in the Midland Basin, holding over 350,000 net acres in the Permian sub-basin.
Since his arrival at Endeavor in 2016, Rovira has built a well construction team that has helped transform the private E&P company into a top-tier Midland Basin horizontal operator. The team increased Endeavor’s production by about 100,000 bbl/d of oil in four years all while maintaining a competitive return for its owners and executing the program safely.
This task “was no small feat” and “proved quite challenging,” Rovira said. “I am so grateful for the vision and leadership of our owner, Autry Stephens, and CEO Chuck Meloy to recruit and continuously challenge a multidisciplined team to achieve this mission. With their support, I was able to deploy the lessons learned over my career regarding project management and leadership to help achieve our company mission.”
Prior to joining Endeavor, Rovira served as general manager of well construction for Anadarko Petroleum Corp. and held roles of increasing responsibility in engineering and operations management spanning petroleum basins in Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Pennsylvania.
The deal would create the largest pure-play northern Midland Basin E&P with a 73,000-net-acre position and 12,000 boe/d of production that is expected to more than double through 2020.
The March 20 lease sale in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico brought in $244.3 million in high bids.
Repsol will still hold a 51% stake in the block after the deal.
