Tehz Management

Maximizing America's Oilfields.


Tehz Management LLC is a privately held energy company focusing on acquisition, development, and exploration of oil and gas in the continental United States.

What separates us from other oil companies is our hands-on approach with large and small operators and our focus on lowering costs while simultaneously increasing existing barrels of oil production each day. Our experienced team is flexible and fast moving, allowing us to easily pursue new ventures.

If you have minerals or working interests you are looking to sell, or if you would like us to evaluate your property to see what value your minerals might have, don't hesitate to contact us!

Tehz is currently active in Oklahoma and Texas. We are always looking to expand and diversify!


Our strategy is to concentrate on vertical prospects in mature hydrocarbon basins where under-explored or under-exploited reserves still exist. We use conventional drilling techniques as well as new completion techniques to improve recovery rates and keep costs low. Most of our prospects are internally generated, however, we will work with outside geologists, engineers and operators who might lack the necessary resources to pursue an idea. While these concentrations best utilize our team's expertise, we are open to partnering with outside parties on horizontal prospects.

Components of our Strategy:

  1. Internal generation of prospects with special emphasis on historical and subsurface geological information to identify prospects.
  2. Identification and exploration of under-explored or under-exploited areas in which the application of our experience, technical expertise, and geologic methodologies could significantly impact results.


As a team that has over 60 years of collective experience in the oil and gas industry, we pride ourselves on our relationships with industry veterans and landowners alike.
