Gulf Coast Western, LLC is an oil and gas firm based in Texas. It focuses on oil exploration and production in the Gulf Coast states, especially Louisiana. It is led by Chief Executive Officer and President Matthew Fleeger. He has led this company since 2007. Before that, he was the CEO, president, and director of MedSolutions which is a medical waste firm.
Matthew Fleeger creates joint ventures with other companies and individuals in the gas and oil industry. In an interview, he stated that he has grown his business using honesty, integrity, and transparency with his partners. He puts his own money into each joint venture. He also encourages creativity because that makes things more interesting for everyone involved.
Gulf Coast Western has two major partnerships in Louisiana. It partnered with Orbit Gulf Coast Exploration in order to acquire almost all the assets of Orbit Energy Partners. Matthew Fleeger says he bought its property rights in Louisiana as well as its 3D seismic data. He also bought their 13 producing wells and 140 locations they had identified as good places to build a well. The parishes these properties are in are Cameron, St. Landry, Beauregard, Acadia, Evangeline, Calcasieu, and Allen.
Another Gulf Coast Western joint venture is in Southeast Louisiana. Its partner on this project is with Northcote Energy Ltd. They are drilling in the Shoats Creek Field and the producing wells are owned 50/50. It’s expected that over four million barrels of oil will be produced from this area.
