Aethon was founded by Albert Huddleston in 1990 to acquire, operate, and develop onshore oil & gas properties with asymmetric return characteristics. Since inception, Aethon has managed over $1.6 billion in oil & gas assets on behalf of family and institutional capital.
Aethon’s investment discipline emphasizes downside protection and the preservation of capital by opportunistically pursuing transactions where Aethon believes it can alter the risk / reward profile in its favor. Aethon acquires oil & gas assets that provide superior returns through reserve development and replacement, identifying unappreciated upside, improved efficiency and cost reduction, disciplined hedging, and financing and divestiture strategies. Among other things, this includes purchasing high-quality reserves in basins where Aethon has an understanding of the geology, petrophysics, basis differential, marketing options, and production declines.
