Chief Investment Officer

Mr. Mulacek has a proven track record of over 35 years in global oil and gas and LNG development. He was the founder and former Chairman and CEO of an NYSE listed company, retired in 2013. Under his 14 year tenure, the company’s market cap increased from US$10 million to over US$5.6 billion, with the share price improving from 50 cents to over US$109 per share. Mr. Mulacek led the discovery of 1.6 billion barrels of oil equivalent in Papua New Guinea, more than any other individual in Asia in the past 30 years.

Mr. Mulacek has a Bachelor of Science in Petroleum Engineering from Texas Tech University. He has worked all aspects of upstream development in drilling, completion and production in North America, Asia, the Middle East, South America, and Africa, and has current activity in several regions. Mr. Mulacek formed his private investment company, Petroleum Independent and Exploration Corporation (PIE Corp), in 1981 with US$2,500 in capital, and it has since grown to hold over US100 million in assets with a focus in the United States.

PIE Corp and its sister companies hold through recent private acquisitions a vast amount of oil and gas royalty mineral acreage in the United States. The acquisition secured long-term access to more than 400 properties and over 500,000 acres spreading from Texas to Georgia and Alabama. The acreage has several geological targets consisting of conventional and future stacked plays with existing infrastructure that we believe have abundant future potential at a low development risk.
