Advantagewon acquired its first interest in the LaVernia Area of Texas on May 30th, 2014 when it acquired Ainsle Oil Corp. Over the period of June 2014 to December 2018, Advantagewon expanded the LaVernia Property by acquiring additional leases. Currently, the LaVernia Area leases total over 3000 acres.
