Our Team

Michael W. Harvey

Mike began his career in the oil and gas business in 1979, first by assembling and generating drilling prospects to sell to other oil companies.  In 1980, Mike drilled his first well and began assembling prospects and joint venture partners to drill wells in various counties across South Texas.  By the late 1980's and after the oil crunch in 1986, Mike recognized the value of working in old fields where there were low-cost, low-risk opportunities to drill wells and acquire old leases that major oil companies were liquidating.  Wells in these old fields proved to have extremely low decline rates and were very predictable.  After drilling, purchasing, re-entering and participating in several hundred wells since 1980, it has been Mike's continued effort to perfect methods of production that would yield the maximum production rates under the most economic scenario.
