Since its founding more than three decades ago, Aethon Energy has quietly evolved from buying and reviving oily assets to today’s laser focus on dry gas production in the Haynesville Shale, where it is the largest private producer at 2.4 billion cubic feet per day. In an interview with Energy Intelligence, Aethon Co-President and Partner Gordon Huddleston, son of founder and CEO Albert Huddleston, offered his thoughts on the current energy markets from a perspective of having grown up in the oil patch and seeing “a lot of different ways to be in the business in terms of downstream, midstream, upstream, international, onshore, offshore — a lot of ways to be successful and unsuccessful.” Answers have been edited for clarity.
