Mr. Johnson was reared in the oil and gas business, as his father was a drilling contractor and oil producer for over 50 years.
Additionally, his grandfather and two uncles were practicing petroleum engineers. After leaving the University of Texas in
September, 1965 he was employed by two major and two large independent oil companies, receiving experience in Texas,
New Mexico, Oklahoma, Montana, North Dakota, and Louisiana. In 1972 he joined the ranks of the independent oil operators.
He has since served as President of several companies, one of which held a fully subscribed underwriting for $6,000,000 in
1981 and was traded on NASDAQ. During his career he has been responsible for generating geological prospects, acquisition
of oil and gas leases and producing properties, generation of drilling funds, supervision of the drilling and completion of numerous
oil and gas wells, and coordination of several mergers. His present company concentrates in acquiring existing wells for remediation
and re-completion as well as generating development drilling prospects.
