History

W&T Offshore was founded in 1983. We are an independent oil and natural gas producer active in the acquisition, exploration and development of properties in the Gulf of Mexico. With our Founder & CEO, Tracy Krohn, at the helm for the past 31 years we have developed significant technical expertise and have successfully discovered and produced properties on the conventional shelf and in the deepwater across the Gulf of Mexico. In 2015, we sold the West Texas Permian Basin properties that had been acquired in 2011. In 2005, we began trading on the NYSE under ticker symbol “WTI” and are now headquartered in Houston, Texas.
