We strive to operate the right way, every day.

SM Energy’s strategic objective is to be a premier operator of top-tier assets. Founded in 1908, we are an independent exploration and production company with a longstanding, principled approach to doing business ethically and responsibly.

Our company culture drives our behavior, and we build open, honest, and transparent relationships with our stakeholders. Our purpose is to make people’s lives better by responsibly producing oil and natural gas, contributing to energy security and prosperity, and having a positive impact in the communities where we live, work, and operate.

SM Energy is headquartered in Denver, Colorado, and has operations in the state of Texas.

Where We Operate

Our strategy is to focus on high quality, Lower 48 oil and natural gas producing assets, with top-tier economic drilling, completion, and production opportunities. At present, our investment portfolio is focused in five counties in the state of Texas, specifically the Midland Basin in West Texas and the Maverick Basin in South Texas. We seek to maximize and expand the value of our assets through application of the latest technologies and outstanding operational execution, with our employees being our most valuable asset. We seek to expand through the acquisition of top-tier acreage and continued delineation of current top-tier assets.
