David H. Arrington is a native Texan. He was born and raised in the South Dallas community of Oak Cliff. David attended Texas Tech University and earned a finance degree in 1983.

After graduating, David’s interest for the oil and gas industry led him to the Permian Basin. He moved to Midland in 1984 and began his career as an independent oil producer. His early drilling prospects were conventional vertical wells in West Texas and Southeastern New Mexico. By 2003, he had drilled his first horizontal well in the Barnett Shale. After drilling over 100 horizontal wells in the Barnett, Arrington is now developing projects, the majority of which utilize horizontal drilling technology.
