Building Operational Partnerships

We leverage diverse talents, internally and externally, to achieve our common objectives
We invest heavily in making sure everyone goes home safely and healthy
Always evolving, EnerVest stays flexible to complement its partnerships. The company is structured around two entities: EnerVest, Ltd. raises capital and buys oil and gas assets and acreage; EnerVest Operating, L.L.C. operates those properties. The Operating Company also operates on behalf of other companies. Currently, we operate for two public companies and have a joint venture with another large sponsor in addition to our long history of traditional operating relationships with institutional investors.
For both investors and partners, we can aggregate smaller assets and responsibly produce steady, lower-risk returns. Our focus on cost savings is company-wide and we’ve invested significant capital ensuring the efficiency of our platform—which embraces both state-of-the-industry drilling techniques as well as digital oilfield and automation technologies.
In 1992, John Walker and the Jones Family founded EnerVest. Its mission was to buy, enhance and sell proven onshore production in the United States. At the time, John was one of the most highly regarded oil analysts in the industry. His reputation helped establish EnerVest as a company to do business with.
As the company matured, we evolved from offering single investor funds to opening our funds to additional institutional investors. Holding strategic acreage just as the shale revolution commenced resulted in significant dividends. Throughout our growth, we have retained our informal family-like culture.
Our Industry has seen many up cycles and down cycles. As a result, we have re-dedicated our focus on operational efficiencies and system-wide cost reductions, reinforcing the reputation that has sustained throughout.
