Our History

Graves & Co. Consulting
GCC is the reservoir engineering and geotechnical affiliate of Graves & Co. Founded in 2017, GCC brings a range of reservoir engineering and asset valuation services in-house, previously obtained by Graves & Co. on a subcontract basis.
For over 23 years, Graves & Co. has provided M&A transaction services and support to the upstream, midstream, and oilfield service sectors of the oil and gas industry, conducting due diligence and evaluations on over $26 billion in asset values. Included in much of this effort were third-party services of reservoir engineering and geological analyses.
Founded in May 1996 by John L. Graves, the firm has a predominant buy-side focus, assisting clients in mergers, acquiring producing properties, negotiating and documenting exploration joint ventures and drilling deals, and conducting due diligence for buyers, lenders, and investors. Over the years, Graves & Co. expanded its services to include oilfield service sector research and analysis and midstream acquisition services.
In mid-2017, John Graves formed the reserve evaluation company, GCC, to provide technical services directly to clients needing independent evaluations of oil and gas assets. Our team of several qualified reservoir engineers and geologists provide technical expertise in domestic and international conventional and unconventional plays.
