Upstream/exploration and production (E&P) operators and investors must constantly adapt to evolving regulations, risk, and commodity prices. The changing landscape of energy requires a nimble and proactive approach to managing the opportunities and challenges in the space — especially difficult issues like finding access to capital and exiting assets.

At Weaver, we know energy. With offices from Houston to Dallas to Midland to Fort Worth, we serve more than 1,000 traditional upstream clients, from smaller independents to multinational energy giants. We offer in-depth knowledge of E&P issues, a deep bench of professionals experienced across the full spectrum of energy interests, and a broad and deep understanding of your business. Our teams are particularly experienced in serving private-equity-sponsored oil and gas companies.

We are deeply familiar with the issues you face, from uncertain credit markets to frequent legislative and tax changes, consolidation, regulatory and environmental oversight, health and safety concerns, data security, and other areas of potential risk.
