East Resources, Inc., was an oil and gas exploration and production company with a focus on unconventional shale oil and gas resources in the US. The company was founded in 1983 by Terrence Pegula.[1] Based in Cattaraugus County, New York through much of the late 20th century, East Resources sold most of its assets to Royal Dutch Shell in 2010 for $4.7 billion[2] and the rest to American Energy Partners, LP in 2014 for $1.75 billion as Pegula shifted his focus to sports and entertainment properties (Pegula used most of the money from the American Energy sale to purchase the Buffalo Bills).[3] East Resources still maintains some natural gas assets.[4]
