About Bald Eagle Energy Inc.
Bald Eagle Energy Inc. was formed in response to America’s oil crisis with the purpose of working toward American energy independence.
As a publicly traded Oil and Gas exploration company (OTCBB:BEEI) based in The Woodlands, Texas, Bald Eagle is also focused on building company and shareholder value with an eye on long-term growth.
Our business model stresses reduced capital expenditures through a minimized team of experienced management, retaining the consulting services of industry experts only when needed, and utilizing third party drilling companies to limit equipment and operating expenses.
At Bald Eagle, we maintain that America can do better than producing 5.1 million barrels of oil per day (MMBOPD) while consuming 20.7 MMBOPD for a daily petroleum shortfall of 15.6 million barrels. That is why we are committed to decreasing our nation’s petroleum shortfall – and dependence on foreign oil – through the vast energy resources found in Alaska.
