Corporate Profile


Our company was founded in 2006 as Laredo Petroleum. Since our earliest days we’ve focused on something much greater than producing hydrocarbons. Driven by constant innovation and a limitless mindset, we aim to set the example in our industry for what’s possible in providing more sustainable and abundant energy – the energy vital to helping people live better, healthier and more prosperously. This focus is why in 2023 we changed our name to Vital Energy. It’s only fitting. Bringing vitality to human lives has always been the soul of our company. And always will be.
