Western Land Services Announces Acquisition of Barton Land Consultants

Establishing an Oklahoma Presence Through a Meaningful Investment

Western Land Services is pleased to announce it has recently acquired Barton Land Consultants, of Duncan, Oklahoma. The transaction closed on March 22nd, 2018. This comes a year after WLS positioned itself as an Employee Owned Company, and represents a bold new step for the future and growth of WLS.

BLC was formed in 2006 by owner Brent Barton. Now a 60+ person, full service operation, Barton has built a solid reputation for providing quality and timely land services to its clients in Oklahoma and beyond.

WLS is thrilled to welcome Brent and the BLC family to the fold. With evident synergies in company cultures, values, and service portfolios, WLS is eager to expand its footprint in Oklahoma and to become more involved in one of the most prolific oil and gas areas in the nation. In conjunction with this acquisition, WLS is also in the midst of securing an Oklahoma City office to strengthen its commitment to this region. WLS and BLC share a wealth of knowledge and experience, along with a commitment to building lasting client relationships by delivering best in class land services. WLS looks forward to sharing those benefits with clients for years to come.
