About Us

History

Olympus Energy LLC is a privately-owned oil and natural gas company that specializes in upstream development of natural gas resources. For the past several years, Olympus (originally Huntley & Huntley Energy Exploration or HHEX) has been developing a premier position in the core Marcellus, Utica, and Upper Devonian basins of Southwestern Pennsylvania, assembling over 100,000 largely contiguous acres rich in natural gas resources. Olympus is committed to utilizing leading-edge exploration and production techniques on this premier asset to create long-lasting value for both landowners and investors.
 
In 2012, HHEX was developed in a partnership with Blackstone and managed in association with Huntley & Huntley, Inc., a firm that has over a century of experience in the oil and natural gas industry. In recent years, Olympus Energy’s management group has expanded to a team of experts who have accumulated many decades of expertise built from working with key industry players. The team has broad experience across unconventional resource plays and supporting industries, and each individual has a proven track record of employing innovative strategies that achieve operational excellence. In 2019, HHEX changed its name to Olympus Energy to better reflect its vision for the future.
