Black River Resources Corporation (BRR) formed in 2008 as the result of a desire by Ronald Flower, its President/CEO, to identify and acquire high quality oil and gas prospects for development and production. After a successful career in telecommunications and helping to launch a wireless equipment company Mr. Flower joined a Texas-based energy production company serving as Vice President. He captained the drilling of 30 wells in West Texas and then joined a Texas-based independent oil company in Frisco as chief consultant. Moving forward to form Black River Resources Inc., Mr. Flower and his team of BRR partners were the successful developers of a 73 well secondary recovery project in Oklahoma and continue to identify and participate in high value opportunities within the energy field.
