Bloomberg: Ward starts privately owned Tapstone Energy

Tom Ward, former chief executive officer of SandRidge Energy Inc. and cofounder of Chesapeake Energy Corp., said he started a privately owned company called Tapstone Energy in Oklahoma City, and he said the company is in its very early stages.

Speaking during the Bloomberg Oil & Gas Conference in Houston on Oct. 17, Ward said he is financing the company on his own for now although he might consider other investors in the future.

“Usually my ideas tend to be larger than my pocketbook,” Ward said. “We might need help along the way if we come across an idea worthy of having a partner.”
