  • J-W Operating Company was founded on November 10, 1960, by Thomas Jeffrey and Howard G. Westerman. In 1960, the principal owners of two water flood units in Arkansas, who could not agree on which of them should operate the units, offered the job to Howard Westerman. Dr. Ralph Connell loaned the money to Jeffrey and Westerman to start a new company. This laid the foundation for what would develop into a company specializing in contract operations, and Dr. Connell has since been affectionately been known as the dash in the "J - W". The company was contracted to drill brine wells and build a gathering system to deliver brine to a local bromine plant and dispose of the wastewater. In 1962, Thomas Jeffrey returned to his passion of independent consulting, and Howard Westerman became the controlling owner and chief executive officer of J-W Operating Company. Over the years, Mr. Westerman's endeavors spawned numerous patents and trademarks, including the Superburn compressor with a two-cycle stratified engine. Owning and operating pipelines and compressors opened the door to the oil-and-gas exploration and production business with discoveries in Northeast Colorado and Northern Louisiana. In 1983, he created Cohort Energy Company to handle the exploration and production operations. In the late 80s, he ventured into power generation from landfill gas. In the 90s, he implemented an aggressive growth strategy and complemented his staff with professional managers whose charge was to double the size of J-W Operating Company. In September 2010, the company was restructured and was essentially renamed J-W Energy Company to better reflect the company's current scope of services. (en)
