MYERS OIL COMPANY
Myers Oil Company is family owned and operated. Our family's involvement in the Permian Basin petroleum industry began in the 1920's when Orville Myers relocated to the area to work in the recently discovered oil fields. He later founded Myers Drilling Company, and was involved in the drilling of many pioneering fields of the time, including some of the largest wells in the very prolific Yates Field, near Iraan, Texas.
Orville "Checkbook" Myers passed on his enthusiasm, expertise, and more than thirty years of hands-on experience in the oil business to his son Walter Myers, current president of Myers Oil Company, and the rest of the Myers gang.
Walter graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in Petroleum Land Management from the University of Oklahoma in 1962, the first year that the program was offered. He has 40 years of experience in petroleum lease acquisition, and has developed many industry contacts in the Permian Basin. His previous employers include Shell Oil, Hunt Energy, Coquina Oil, Dowling Petroleum (where he served as Vice President), and West Texas Water Supply. For the past 10 years Walter's primary emphasis has been on Permian Basin acquisition and development prospects. Walter also performs contract land work, subject to availability.
