Jason Cansler, Director


Jason currently serves as the President and CEO of Rock Oil Company III, a private E&P company focused in the Permian Basin and Midcontinent. As President of Rock Oil II from 2014-2016, Jason helped the company build and develop large, contiguous position in the Midland Basin. In August 2016, Rock Oil sold its ~25,000 acre Howard County, Texas position to SM Energy for $980 Million.

Prior to joining Rock Oil, Jason’s career was focused on integrating his geologic understanding of oil and gas reservoirs with the commercial skills necessary to acquire and develop them. He spent the first eleven years of his career at Chevron working in various technical and commercial roles, both onshore and offshore. After his time at Chevron, he joined a small team at Wells Fargo to found its Oil and Gas Acquisitions and Divestiture Team, where he participated in buy-side and sell-side advisory assignments that led to $4.4 Billion in closed transactions between 2011-2014. Jason received his B.S. and M.S degrees in Geology from Kansas State University and University of Kansas (respectively), and his MBA from Tulane University.
