Quicksilver Resources Inc. is an exploration and production company engaged in the development and production of long-lived natural gas and oil properties onshore North America. Based in Fort Worth, Texas, the company is widely recognized as a leader in the development and production from unconventional reservoirs including shale gas, coal bed methane and tight gas sands. Following more than 30 years of operating as a private company, Quicksilver became public in 1999 and is listed on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol KWK.
Quicksilver's four productive hydrocarbon areas (Texas, Rocky Mountains, Alberta and British Columbia) are all unconventional natural gas and oil plays at different stages of maturity, development and production running the gamut from high-growth potential to long-term sustained production with established infrastructure and facilities. The majority of the natural gas production from the Fort Worth Basin is gathered and processed by Crestwood Midstream (NYSE – CMLP), formerly Quicksilver Gas Services LP, a limited partnership.
