  Why Choose Artex?


We are local.

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, making 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.  According to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, Division of Oil and Gas Resources Management database, since 2004 Artex Oil Company has drilled 183 Knox Group wells, while the nearest competitor permitted 61.

We risk our own money. 
We are a private company and do not solicit outside investors or take on debt to fund our drilling program.  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.

We want to answer your questions. 
We pride ourselves on having highly-trained professionals at all levels of the company and are more than willing to speak with you regarding any questions or concerns you have. We believe that being knowledgeable about the process creates a better experience for everyone.
