Creating a top operating company.

In 1992, John Walker, along with Jones family, founded EnerVest as a buyer of conventional North American oil and gas properties. Our strategy? Buy, enhance and sell proven onshore production. Use our operational expertise to dominate key basins, optimize efficiencies and profits. Finally, hedge strategically to mitigate risk.

In January 2012, EnerVest restructured its businesses, creating EnerVest Institutional, G.P. to serve as Co-General Partner of future Funds, and combined its separate operating divisions into EnerVest Operating, L.L.C.

We’ve learned a lot in our 27-year history. Today, we’re one of the top 25 largest independent oil and gas companies in the country.
