Our roots run deep.

From groundbreaking beginnings to enduring legacies.

A rich history of successful investment.

Our story is 90 years in the making.

Petro-Hunt, L.L.C. is a privately held independent oil and gas company headquartered in Dallas, Texas. Owned and operated by the William Herbert Hunt family, Petro-Hunt and its affiliates are actively engaged in various industries with a primary focus in the oil and gas industry.

Our company traces its roots to the 1920s, when the legendary H.L. Hunt entered the oil and gas business in El Dorado, Arkansas, and later played an active role in developing the East Texas Oil Field from the drill test of the Daisy Bradford #3.

Today, Petro-Hunt is a Top 10 Private Liquids Producer in the U.S. with operations in six states. We are more than just an oil and gas company — Petro-Hunt actively purchases minerals and royalties, owns and operates a gas processing facility, is part owner of an oil refinery, actively invests in real estate development, and operates a private equity alternative investment division.
