The Company

James Thomas founded Thomas Energy, Inc. in 1993.  Having been employed as an in-house landman in Wichita, he recognized the need in Kansas for a company that was not only effective at buying leases but also emphasized precision when examining mineral and leasehold titles.  Since then, Thomas Energy has been committed to excellence in those areas and all other facets of land work.

Over the years, Thomas Energy has successfully completed all kinds of projects.  We have leased townships, town lots, and tracts with more than 100 mineral owners.  We have performed field and in-house due diligence on production purchases ranging from one well to hundreds.  We have also run mineral and leasehold titles for a wind energy company.  We would be humbled to help you with your next project.
