Oil & Gas

A Century of Experience

There’s one thing we don’t do at T. Baker Smith — shy away from a challenge. A century of experience has taught us that oil and gas exploration and production present unique challenges every step of the way. Whether you’re working on land, nearshore or offshore, you’ve got to quickly and accurately identify prospects, as well as move your product efficiently throughout your asset’s life cycle. That’s why we tailor our approach to each client, working across locations and practice areas.

Getting Things Done

Safely and Efficiently

Quite simply, it’s an approach that gets things done safely. Year in and year out, we have helped countless oil and gas companies with well locations, flowlines and facilities from the Rio Grande, to the Piney Woods of North Louisiana, to the deep blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Now, it’s your turn to enjoy success.

Customer Satisfaction

We let our customers speak for us

“ As a Landman, I have worked on projects with T Baker Smith for many years. I continue to utilize their services because they are professional, trustworthy and assist me, the client, in finding the most efficient resolution for varying types of challenges whether it’s surveying or permitting. ”

Carol M. Sledge, CPL
“ What keeps me coming back to T. Baker Smith is the dedication that Kenny and his team exhibits every day; it is one of the most valuable things to me. I cannot recall one time TBS did not follow through on getting what we asked for. You get what you pay for, and with TBS, we do not have to sit and babysit or redo the work. ”
Craig Guidry

“ We have worked previously with other consultants and find that TBS’ reliability and capability are superior to their competition. They are always available to assist us at Rebecca, Magnolia, Coulon, Acadia, St. Bridget and Evergreen Plantations as well as the Bayou Lafourche Freshwater Reintroduction project, by providing surveying and modeling support. ”
