Our Company

McElvain Energy, Inc. entered the oil and gas industry in the 1920’s. Since its humble beginnings in the industry, our company has experienced steady growth to its position today as one of the nation’s top private oil and gas producers. We attribute our growth to sustained investment in drilling, prospect generation, and acquisitions; attention to risk management; timely divestitures; reinvestment of internal cash-flow; moderate use of debt; and a business plan focused on integrity and long term relationships.


Today, McElvain Energy, Inc. employs over 50 people in specialized technical and support positions. Our company is a fully integrated operating and production company with interests in over 4000 wells across the country including more than 250 wells that we operate. Over the past decade, we have achieved superior results in an increasingly competitive environment.  These results have earned McElvain Energy national recognition, including:

  • Named to the Inc. 5000 in 2008, 2009, and 2010, including ranking within the top 100 energy companies.
  • Listed in the top 50 gas producers in 2009, 2010, and 2011, as well as in the top 50 oil producers in 2010, by New Mexico Business Weekly.
  • Included in the top private producers in 2008, 2009, and 2010 by the Oil and Gas Financial Journal.

The company continues to focus its efforts on participation in high quality projects, increased operational control and strategic investment in a limited number of core areas and basins to support future growth with integrity.
