About Us


LEWCO is one of the most dependable, integrated technical solutions providers for the oil and gas industry. 

With over 25 years of experience serving the industry as one of the premier oil and gas staffing agencies, we’ve placed thousands of professionals in a wide assortment of contract, contingent, and full-time roles. From new hires to seasoned veterans, if you can name a job in the oil and gas industry, we’ve placed an expert there.

 Our story goes back to when LEWCO’s founder, Greg L. Lewis, worked his first oilfield job in his hometown of Delhi, Louisiana as a roughneck on a Sun Oil Company operated oil well in the summer of 1972. His dad was a toolpusher who ensured the oil business was instilled in his son’s blood. 

 By 1982, Mr. Lewis received his Bachelor of Science degree in Petroleum Engineering from Louisiana State University. In the same year, he began his career with Tenneco Oil Company (later acquired by Chevron). Mr. Lewis began his first consulting job in 1989, and five years later, LEWCO was formed with its first client being Amoco Production Company. LEWCO flourished over the years while Mr. Lewis continued consulting with the merged companies of Amoco and British Petroleum for the next 22 years. 

 Mr. Lewis continues to practice as a consultant in the oil and gas industry while leading a successful staffing business specializing in the energy industry. His experience as a veteran oilman managing countless high-profile projects brings a special skill in selecting top professionals for his clients.

 LEWCO believes and prides itself in providing best-in-class people that deliver best-in-class service. Our people are handpicked to ensure they are not only competent, but are truly team players. LEWCO values our people and their hard work. First class service comes from first class people.
