Summit Petroleum’s basic mission is to explore for, discover and produce oil and natural gas. This is done through both drilling and acquisition.

The majority of these prospects are “developmental” sites, situated in the middle of or immediately adjacent to known areas of economic production.

Each year since 1984, the company has acted as General Partner for Limited Partnerships or as Operator for Joint Ventures; the primary activity of which has been the drilling and completion of gas wells in northeast Ohio and nearby areas. The company will continue to sponsor drilling programs, and will also tailor drilling programs to the specific needs of individual investors, or investor groups.
