Liberty was founded in 2011 with the mission to build a different frac company. Liberty founders each bring over 20 years of technology thought leadership and operations excellence that have been powering the shale revolution from its beginnings in the late 1990s. We are dedicated to partnering with leading exploration and production companies to apply technology innovations and superior operations. From day one we have been committed to reducing our customers’ cost of producing a barrel of oil.
Liberty will continue to place faith in our people and will invest in hiring, training and retaining the best and brightest individuals in our field. Building partnerships with our customers and understanding what drives their success is what sets Liberty apart… when they succeed, we succeed. We are excited to lead change in the industry and continue to make our customers stronger by building better wells faster, safer, and cleaner.
