Why Choose Artex?

We are local. 

We are a local company employing local people to provide energy to America.  All our employees, from the President to the field workers, reside in Ohio.  We believe our people are our greatest asset, and because we live in the local communities, we hold a higher respect for you and your property.

We work hard. 

Our determination to find the best opportunities to explore for oil and gas sets us apart from our competitors.  Our commitment does not stop there.  We work hard to find the best locations and to maximize the amount of oil and gas that is ultimately sold.  Our efforts have resulted in tens of millions of dollars paid out to our royalty owners, which at one point made Artex the second largest producer in the state of Ohio.

We drill wells.

The number of Knox Group wells we drill is unmatched by any of our competitors. Since 2000, Artex Oil Company has drilled 200 Knox Group wells, three times our nearest competitor. 

We risk our own money.

Because we drill using the funds we generate from the oil and gas produced, our only incentive is to drill the most successful wells possible.  This means that you, as a royalty owner, receive the advantage of our full and undivided effort on each well.  Our continued success depends on landowners allowing us the opportunity to develop the best sites, which should lead to maximum royalties.
