HEYCO Energy Group is owned by members of the Yates family of southeastern New Mexico, who have been active in the domestic upstream oil and gas business since the 1920s. Martin Yates, Jr. and his partners discovered the first commercial oil well on state lands in New Mexico in 1924.
In 1969, pioneer oilman and wildcatter Harvey Yates founded Harvey E. Yates Company, the historic cornerstone of HEYCO Energy Group.
Today, HEYCO Energy Group manages domestic and international oil and gas exploration and development projects in the United States and Europe.
HEYCO’s core resources are technical knowledge and management experience applied by a team with specific and proven skills in geology, geophysics, reservoir engineering, international negotiation, drilling and production, and land and operations management.
