Company Background

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.
