“PetroQuest Energy started utilizing CPC in 2011 to run their Cotton Valley Horizontal Drilling Projects. Since bringing in the CPC folks, performance in the Cotton Valley improved dramatically. Because of their straight forward way of running operations, focus on safety, and their deep technical knowledge we turn toward CPC as our preferred vendor for the supply of consulting engineers and Company Men. With their sharp focus on performance we have been able to drill record wells in both Louisiana and East Texas.

Their professional completion engineers and Company Men have also made a huge difference in our well completion performance. Just like the CPC’s drilling professionals, their completions personnel are very hard working, intelligent, and technically astute. The entire CPC team is performance focused and always strives to learn and improve in order to be the best performer in the area. They have a thorough understanding of the upstream energy business and all of the CPC professionals have excellent Team Leadership skills.

They are indeed a pleasure to work with.”

“CPC has provided North South Oil a full range of drilling management support/services and has basically functioned as our drilling department. This support includes working alongside NSO management from the planning phase to execution in the field. NSO has realized the benefit of CPC working with other operators across a broad spectrum of the industry and their importing of best practices to our business.”

Michael Whitten

Managing Director, North South Oil


“I contracted Capital Petroleum Consultants Inc for the consistency and continuity of their engineering and field consulting relationship.  This proved valuable and rewarding for a lean company without continuous drilling operations to have a seasoned team of support and allow seamless transition into and out of drilling operations. Based on the professional management I experienced, I highly recommend them for any service they provide.”

Kennon Doyal

VP Operations, Bruin E&P Partners, LLC


“I have worked with the guys at Capital Petroleum Consultants on more than 20 wells over the past 3 years and have been more than satisfied with their technical knowledge, work ethic and ‘ownership’ in the project.  They are one of the few consultancy firms that can adjust from leading and executing for smaller operators, to consulting and optimizing for larger clients.  I will not hesitate to reach out to Bob, Terrell and Kris for my next project.”

“Roughly 100 wells, 1.5 million feet drilled on time and on budget. CPC hands have worked every well Crimson Exploration has drilled since 2010. CPC will be there going forward.”

Carl Isaac

SVP Operations, Crimson Exploration Operating Inc

“My working relationship with the management team of Capital Petroleum Consultants, Inc. extends now for more than 4 years. They have provided me with top of the line, comprehensive project consultancy support for all phases of the project, from screening to execution. Their assistance to us during the planning and execution stages of our south Texas eagle ford project was excellent and rewarding for all parties.

They have internal experts in several fields of the drilling and completion disciplines not only for south Texas fields but also extends to other geographical applications such as east Texas, DJ basin and Louisiana shallow waters.

Their support and team oriented approach was embedded into our organization and help us drive optimization and substantial savings during our execution stages.”

XOG Resources, LLC(XOG) has been very pleased with the service provided by Capital Petroleum Consultants, Inc(CPC).  They planned and drilled a 12,000’ directional well in Brazoria County, Texas for XOG in early, 2016.  CPC acted as the drilling department for XOG and handled all aspects of planning, permitting and drilling the well.  As occasionally happens, we had drilling problems on the well.  Bob Zaunbrecher worked diligently with the drilling contractor/venders, RRC and our investment partners to work through the problems and get us back on track.

I have worked with Bob Zaunbrecher for over 15 years in a similar capacity.  He and his team have drilled numerous wells along the Upper Gulf Coast and South Texas for various companies where I was employed since 2000.  Bob has consistently brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table during that time.  In addition, he has provided service that has made me feel as if he is part of our organization.

I recommend CPC and XOG is working with them to drill and recomplete several more wells in Brazoria County, Texas.
