Company profile

BKV Corporation is an agile, privately held natural gas exploration & production company. The company was formed out of the visionary strategy Thailand based of Banpu Public Company Limited, which believed that the U.S. gas business offered an exciting future of opportunities. BKV Corporation seeks to invest in attractive upstream oil and gas opportunities in North America with the goal of creating long-term sustainable value. With assets in the northeast Marcellus Shale (Pennsylvania) and in the Barnett Shale (North Texas), BKV is headquartered in Denver, Colorado. The company has grown rapidly from its formation in June 2015 to become the 17th top natural gas producer in the United States.

Our Impact

We are operating and growing our energy company with transparency, innovation, growth, and balance amongst our primary drivers. Also, paramount amongst our core business is sustainability. We view our commitment to sustainability as both practical and providential. It strengthens our current operations and positions us well for the coming decades. It makes our company a serious consideration for investors who believe that ESG is a determinant of future value creation. As an energy company that thinks forward and operates forward, BKV offers a compelling alternative to other legacy E&P opportunities.


The BKV leadership team represents decades of experience and success in oil & gas explorations, production operations, technology, strategy and business management. And as important as past and present individual achievements and contributions in their respective disciplines, this team shares a common understanding and vision of the energy sector going forward…and of BKV’s pivotal role as a leader in that future.
