Zachary Hart, senior vice president of A&D and reservoir engineering at Indigo Natural Resources, is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.

When Hart joined Indigo in 2009, the company was producing about 25 MMcf/d from shallow, vertical wells in North Louisiana. Starting with Indigo’s first Haynesville acquisition in 2016, he has helped lead the company through multiple acquisitions and subsequent development to grow its total production to over 1 Bcfe/d.

“In just three short years, we accomplished two major milestones: We grew our net rate from approximately 150 MMcf/d to over 1 Bcf/d, making us one of the largest private natural gas producers in the U.S., and we entered into a 50:50 midstream joint venture [JV], which was built, filled with Indigo’s gas and subsequently sold for $2.65 billion,” he said.

Prior to joining Indigo, Hart served in various reservoir engineering, acquisition and divestiture and operational engineering roles for El Paso E&P (now EP Energy) in both Houston and Denver.
