Sometimes, to achieve success, it takes a partnership of a person of great ideas with a superior business model. This is the case with Gulf Coast Western’s business focus and the leadership of Matthew Fleeger, the firm’s president and CEO.

Gulf Coast Western is focused on exploration, development, and acquisition of commercial hydrocarbon reserves. Their principal area of activity is the prolific Gulf Coast region of the southern U.S.  The firm’s main goal has never wavered throughout its near half-century history: To participate in the best risk-assessed oil and gas opportunities that provide significant returns for their stakeholders.
