Laramie Energy II, LLC and its subsidiary Piceance Energy, LLC (collectively referred to as "Laramie Energy" or the "Company") is a Denver-based company primarily focused on finding and developing natural gas reserves from unconventional gas reservoirs within the U.S. Rockies. Its predecessor company, Laramie Energy, LLC (now referred to as "Laramie I"), sold all of its oil and gas assets in May 2007, and its former oil and gas fields are now operated by Occidental Petroleum Corporation.

Laramie Energy was formed in June 2007 by Laramie I executives and former employees and by affiliates of the same private equity investors that helped Laramie I succeed. Laramie Energy is backed by over $300 million of equity capital commitments funded by the Company's management team, EnCap Investments, Avista Capital, and DLJ Merchant Banking Partners (an affiliate of Credit Suisse Securities). In addition, Laramie Energy is debt financed by JPMorgan Chase Bank and Wells Fargo Bank.

With its seasoned executive leadership, an operations team with a reputation for excellence, and its solid financial foundation, Laramie Energy continues as a leading operator in the Rockies. The Company is currently conducting an active acquisition and development program within the Piceance Basin of Western Colorado.
