Red McCombs began his energy ventures in the mid-1960s with business partner Bill Forney. Starting with a classic handshake deal, Red and Bill became partners in numerous oil deals as operators, primarily in South Texas. Some of their major discoveries were the McCaskill Field in Karnes County and the Charline Field and Schreiner Ranch Field in Live Oak County.
In 1998, the various oil and gas assets were consolidated into McCombs Energy. Today we have many long-standing relationships with exploration and production companies, and working interest production in Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Alabama, and other states in the South and Southwest U.S.
In addition to the upstream activities in Texas, Red has oil and gas investments across the continental U.S., offshore, and in international plays as well.
