About Pioneer Natural Resources
Pioneer Natural Resources Company was formed through the 1997 merger of Parker & Parsley Petroleum Company and MESA Inc.
We are a large independent oil and gas company focused on helping meet the world’s energy needs.
Our foundation of stable properties, advanced technology and strategic practices allow us to pursue new and emerging resource plays.
In September 2004, Pioneer merged with Evergreen Resources, Inc., creating a new core area in the Rocky Mountains that enhances Pioneer’s strong foundation in North America.
Throughout the years Pioneer’s high-quality assets have yielded significant discoveries for the industry. A solid base of operations and continued drive to increase production and cash flow has helped Pioneer become one of the largest operators in the Spraberry/Wolfcamp oil field in West Texas, the gas-rich Raton basin in Southeastern Colorado and the West Panhandle gas field in the Texas Panhandle. It is one of the most active drillers in the South Texas Eagle Ford Shale play.
