"Phoenix began its relationship with The Wiser Oil Company of Canada in January 1995. The relationship was initially only as a pure marketer of oil and gas, but evolved over time to be much more than that, and ended nearly 10 years later on September 30, 2004, upon the sale of the company.
Throughout the relationship, a high quality, professional attitude prevailed. Dave Maffitt, as the primary contact for the firm, dealt with myself, as the general manager of the Canadian company, as well as with corporate officers in Dallas with the utmost of confidentiality, providing his considerable expertise in all aspects of marketing that we required. During that time, the Canadian operation grew from some 2000 boepd to over 8000 boepd, but on the hedging side, Dave was involved in the whole company's activity. On the working level, Phoenix consistently provided high quality, knowledgeable people with great continuity, who worked well with Wiser's staff in every instance."
