Who we are at our core.


H&J Petroleum was founded with the purpose of providing management, consulting and education services to the oil & gas industry. H&J’s three founders are degreed engineers who have served the oil & gas industry for over 40 years. H&J Petroleum was established with the goal of becoming recognized as an industry leader in upstream project management, technical expertise, and field supervisory services.

Our company is devoted to a culture of safety. We believe in operating and managing our company according to our core principles of faith, safety, integrity, education and excellence. The cornerstone of H&J is our belief and faith in Jesus Christ. Our attitude is based on Ecclesiastes 9:10, “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might.” H&J Petroleum distinguishes itself from its competitors by providing value in every transaction, to all of the stakeholders in that transaction, including our clients, employees, and ourselves.

One of the more apparent ways we achieve that is through our deep focus on the education of our employees and contractors. We invest in our front line personnel and technical staff to make sure they bring the highest possible value to our clients, our employees, and our company. We are dedicated to the pursuit of quality and striving for excellence in all areas of our services and within the communities we live and work in.

H&J’s pricing structure also provides more value to our customers. Unlike the flat rate many competitors offer, we offer our clients a tiered pricing system. The primary factors considered in our pricing method are experience, education and skill level. At H&J, in accordance with our pursuit of excellence, we are committed to grow at a sustainable rate. In order for us to provide the level of support necessary to our clients and contractors, we focus on smaller quantity of work delivered at the highest quality and value.
