A Career Love Affair in Petroleum, everything we have become is due to our Oil and Gas roots. James C Karo Associates began in 1998 serving oil and gas operators and we added an in-depth and qualified staff to help provide land related services involving exploration, production, transportation and enhanced secondary oil recovery projects including CO2, Crude Oil and High Pressure Gas transportation and pipelines.
We typically support operations driven companies in their exploration and development efforts primarily in the Rocky Mountains and California Regions. Title work, Due Diligence Reviews, Leasing Projects, Pipeline Routes and Easement Acquisitions, Landowner Negotiations for Drill Pads, Tank Storage, Compressor Stations and State authorized Drilling Permits.
Our early history included field land work then James became a company landman, moving up the ranks into land department management and eventually becoming Vice President of Acquisitions for Latin American Operations (Nicaragua, Paraguay, Honduras and Brasil). He has been a broker, run brokers, towed the company line and run a land service business for a couple decades or so!
We've ridden the boom and bust cycles of oil and gas into other endeavors, but our heart and soul remain with the energy industry.
