Leading, Large Scale Resource Development

Committed to Responsible Resource Development

Who We Are


Founded in 2009, Hammerhead Energy Inc., formerly known as Hammerhead Resources Inc., and Canadian International Oil Corporation (CIOC), is a Calgary, Alberta based oil and gas producer committed to strong corporate, operational, stakeholder, and financial performance. Hammerhead Resources ULC is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hammerhead Energy Inc.

We are advancing a growth-oriented strategy focused on leading, large scale resource development in the Alberta Montney, one of North America’s highest return plays. Our operations target the responsible development of multi-zone, light-oil rich opportunities, supported by a culture of excellence and strong alignment with integrated environment, social and governance (“ESG”) principles.

Our Focus


Flexibility to fund high-return growth and maintain a strong balance sheet

The Company’s large, contiguous land base is in the heart of the Montney light oil window, and adjacent to top-tier operators. Our sizeable drilling inventory provides long running room while a commitment to disciplined and efficient capital deployment generates attractive economics

Based on our proven strategy, Hammerhead has the size, scale and capital discipline to profitably grow to the next level. 

In the spirit of meaningful and respectful relationship building, Hammerhead Energy acknowledges the land as an important part of reconciliation. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit whose footsteps have been imprinted on the land for generations. We show appreciation for the Elders who have gone before us and those still with us today. We are grateful to live, learn and work in our head office located within the traditional territories of Niitsitapi (Blackfoot) and the people of the Treaty 7 region in Southern Alberta, which includes the Siksika, the Piikani, the Kainai, the Tsuut’ina and the Stoney Nakoda First Nations, including Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations and home to Métis Nation of Alberta, Region 3. We are equally grateful to live, learn and work with our field operations in the traditional territories of the Cree, Dene, Nakoda Sioux, Iroquois and Inuit as well as Métis Nation of Alberta Region 4 who share a deep history with this land.


Hammerhead is a growth-oriented company based in Calgary, Alberta with production and development focused in the multi-zone, Montney light oil window.

Better Every Day.
