The Yates family of southeastern New Mexico has been active in the oil and gas industry since the 1920s. In 1924, Martin Yates Jr. drilled the first commercial oil well in New Mexico, in what would become the energy-rich Permian Basin.


HEYCO adds value to international projects by providing strategy, technical expertise, regulatory advice, and a network of expert contacts formed over many decades as a successful independent operator in the Permian Basin, one of the most prolific plays in the United States.
