FORT WORTH, Texas, Oct. 5, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Weatherly Oil & Gas, LLC ("Weatherly") announced today that it has partnered with Vortus Investment Advisors, LLC ("Vortus"). Based in Fort Worth, Weatherly focuses on acquiring and developing large legacy assets in the Ark-La-Tex region where the team boasts a successful operational track record. 

Led by founder and CEO Perry Reed, Chief Operating Officer Amy Omar, and Chief Financial Officer Marshall Robinson, Weatherly has assembled a pedigreed team of technical and commercial professionals with proven track records of success operating in East Texas and North Louisiana.  Leveraging the team's experience ranging from Exco to Exxon, Weatherly intends to utilize practices both old and new to realize the substantial value across its broad asset base of approximately 180,000 net acres with multiple producing horizons (including Cotton Valley, Bossier, and Haynesville) in partnership with Vortus.
