Fort Worth’s Goff invests in Denver-based energy firm

Fort Worth-based businessman and investor John C. Goff has purchased 5.7 percent or 4.44 million shares of stock in Resolute Energy Corp. of Denver.

The investment was disclosed in an SEC filing that listed Goff and several associated firms as making various stock purchases.

Resolute Energy is an independent oil and gas company engaged in the exploitation, development, exploration and acquisition of oil and gas properties. The company’s asset base consists primarily of properties in Aneth Field located in the Paradox Basin in southeast Utah, the Permian Basin in West Texas and southeast New Mexico, and the Powder River and Big Horn Basins in Wyoming. Approximately 86 percent of its estimated net proved reserves were oil and approximately 92 percent were oil and natural gas liquids (NGL).

Resolute Energy announced in early June that it received a letter dated June 1, 2015, from the New York Stock Exchange informing the company it has regained compliance with the NYSE’s continued listing standards. The company was notified in February that it had fallen out of compliance with the requirement that the company’s common stock be above $1 per share over 30 consecutive trading days. Resolute Energy’s stock closed at $1.02 at close of the day on Monday.
