Old Ironsides Energy, LLC was founded in August 2013. The firm’s principals — Scott Carson, Greg Morzano, Sean O’Neill and Daniel Rioux — began working together when the economic drilling and development of unconventional plays was beginning to emerge as a nascent industry. Since then, unconventional drilling has grown to become the primary driving force behind the U.S. energy industry, making vast new hydrocarbon resources available for drilling and development, and along with them, the need for new processing plants and pipelines to move the oil, natural gas, NGLs and refined products to domestic market centers and international export facilities.
Since the firm’s founding, we believe the Old Ironsides team’s experience and investment philosophy has produced a record of value creation, represented by a mixed portfolio of more than 20 upstream and midstream companies and drilling joint ventures.
