Austin Exploration, an oil and gas exploration company headquartered in Melbourne, Australia (with a satellite office in Lakewood, Colo.) has chosen JohnstonWells Public Relations to implement an intensive public relations campaign, as it prepares to be introduced to the American oil and gas industry.

JohnstonWells will execute an all encompassing campaign that includes a corporate name change to Arapahoe Energy, a new design aesthetic and website, and media and community relations. While based in Australia, Austin Exploration has purchased superior drilling sites in Texas, Colorado and other states in the U.S. In Australia, it will soon begin drilling in the Cooper Basin, Australia’s most prolific onshore oil and gas province. As Austin Exploration prepares to drill in these areas, it is evaluating additional projects in Europe. Austin Exploration intends to grow through mergers and acquisitions of other oil and gas companies and is currently listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX code: AKK).
