Oil & Gas INDEX was started by Robert (Bob) Elias.
His association with the Oil & Gas Industry began in 1950 with
McColl-Frontenac Oil Company Limited (Texaco) where he attained the position of
Manager of Land Operations in Canada. In 1965 he organized three successful
junior resource companies. In 1968, in addition to land consulting, he started
the PETROLEUM LAND JOURNAL which listed available oil and gas rights for
disposition. Over several years, a substantial database was established on
companies that carried out exploration and development in Western Canada.
The INDEX was conceived in 1986 to provide current and historical information
to the Oil and Gas market. Since its inception the INDEX knew the importance of
providing the most complete, accurate and current information to the industry.
Bob has passed, however his long serving employees, own and operate the INDEX,
as a continuation of his legacy.
