Mills has nearly 35 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, including public company management experience. Most recently, he served as Chairman of the Board and CEO of Eagle Rock Energy Partners, where he was responsible for creating and managing the strategic direction of the company and its growth as an E&P and Midstream Master Limited Partnership (MLP). Prior to that role, he founded and served as CEO of Montierra Minerals & Production, L.P., a private equity backed mineral and upstream company.   

Mills has also served as Senior Vice President of Operations for Black Stone Minerals, L.P., Senior Vice President of El Paso Production Company and Sonat Exploration Company.  Mills currently serves on the Board of the Houston Producers Forum and is a member of the University of Houston Energy Advisory Board.  Mills holds a BBA in Petroleum Land Management from the University of Texas, Austin and an MBA in Finance from the University of Houston.

Previously, on February 13, 2017, the Court entered an order confirming Samson's plan to emerge from Chapter 11 in the near future. This will provide Samson a sustainable capital structure and will position it to compete in the oil and gas industry in the future.
