Economically Critical. Environmentally Responsible.

Oil & Gas is critical to the local and state economies in several parts of the United States, particularly the Mountain West. This industry provides high-paying jobs, supports the tax base, and provides for education, public safety, and health care. With the remarkable improvements in drilling and production techniques, exploration, production and midstream companies are building a future of energy independence for America and world class production for the global economy.

As an active participant with several State-level industry organizations, SMA is a strong teaming partner to help you meet the challenges to build this future.

Like you, we live and work in the Basins.

SMA has lived in, worked in, and supported the communities in the Permian, San Juan, Uinta and D-J Basins for more than 30 years. Our locally-based scientists, engineers, and surveyors apply local familiarity and perspective while the broader team of professionals throughout SMA bring technical expertise unmatched by smaller firms. In addition, we have offices strategically located to best provide on-site support.
