QStar is a privately held, Houston-based independent oil and gas company focused on the identification, acquisition and exploration of liquids-rich plays in various onshore U.S. basins with a particular emphasis on the Permian Basin. QStar is led by Gerald Carman (CEO), David Newman (COO), Charles Close (CFO), Mark Przywara (VP Geosciences) and John Lodge (VP Land & Commercial). Management has an impressive track record of creating value both individually and collectively, most recently with TriTech Energy Capital. QStar’s strategy involves employing a data-driven approach. The company will rely extensively on subsurface data and historical production and well data to identify areas that have yet to be exploited with modern completion techniques.
