Incorporated in 1988, Harvest operated as a publicly held independent energy company engaged in the development and production of oil and gas properties from 1989 until May 2017. Its strategy was to identify and exploit oil and gas reserves in underdeveloped areas while seeking to minimize associated risk. During this period, Harvest acquired, operated, and sold or otherwise disposed of oil and gas properties in several countries.

On February 23, 2017, Harvest's stockholders authorized its dissolution following the sale of its last remaining operating assets. On May 4, 2017, Harvest dissolved, and the listing of its common stock on the New York Stock Exchange was terminated. As a dissolved corporation under Delaware law, Harvest no longer operates as an oil and gas company but must continue to exist for at least three years solely for the purpose of liquidating and winding up.
