Target Energy is a rapidly growing oil and gas producer focussed on the prolific Permian Basin in West Texas. The company has increased its 2P reserves by 887% to 1.2 mmboe (and total reserves and resources by 280% to 2.8 mmboe) during the past year and has achieved a 235% gain in net production over the past two quarters. An active exploration program is in progress and should drive further strong uplift in production. Target Energy is dual listed trading on the US OTCQX and the ASX.
