We are a private equity backed start-up poised to build a leading independent E&P business in the Powder River Basin. We have a tremendous opportunity to use our highly contiguous, core acreage position as a platform for growth. With a committed and focused team, together we can achieve great success!


GRIT is who we are, how we work, and what it takes to be on the Northwoods team. Grit not only is a defining characteristic of our organization, it is the vessel of our core values.

We believe that responsible resource production is only achievable through an operation that values the livelihood and safety of the communities where we work and live. We do not compromise on our commitment to safety, community and the environment.

Remaining lean and efficient in our industry requires an innovative and entrepreneurial mindset that is company-wide at Northwoods.
