TRU Operating, LLC History
The roots of TRU Operating, LLC extend from the late 1800’s. The principles of TRU Operating, LLC have been associated with oil and gas for the entirety of their respective lives. Mr. Trubenbach’s family drilled their first well in the late 1890’s. The history didn't stop with the inception of these drills either; it became the family business for the following generations. Throughout the next four generations, these families evolved in the oil and gas business and created drilling, exploration, service, and consulting companies which creates tremendous resources to draw knowledge from. TRU Operating, LLC maintains over a hundred years of drilling records in fields that have shown substantial production, and in turn have the ability to tap into this large “bank” of experience and knowledge that helps the company better understand risk and reward scenarios for future development.
TRU Operating, LLC learned from its ancestry that the way to maintain stability in the oil and gas business is simply done by one word, Integrity. TRU Operating, LLC’s company motto has always been, “Do the right thing for the right reason.” It is a simple thought and credo to live by, no matter the situation. Oil and gas well drilling has significant risks and responsibilities, and our company prides itself on being full disclosure to all parties involved in the partnership. All too often in today’s economies, it is about the “quick buck” and companies sacrifice their own integrity to facilitate their business.
As our family has done for over 100 years, TRU Operating, LLC drills for oil and gas reserves in order to create a cash flowing asset. The principles of TRU have drilled wells in many areas throughout Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Louisiana. Our experience has taught us to focus on areas that have proven reserves at shallower depths, and leave the “Wildcatting” to companies that are more risk tolerant.
TRU Operating, LLC LLC was formed for the purpose of allowing certain qualified investors, whether industry or non-industry, to participate in joint ventures that implement the core beliefs of our company. Our business objective is to acquire high value leases and in order to drill and produce the reserves at the lowest possible cost, thus a higher percentage yield to the partnerships.
TRU Operating, LLC is proud of our history and heritage, and it is best described in this famous quote-
“We should not look back unless it is to derive useful lessons from past errors, and for the purpose of profiting by dearly bought experience.”
