PROFESSIONAL EXPERIENCE
Jon Keary began his career in the oil and gas business in 1978 in Jackson, Mississippi with Tideway Energy, Inc. where he worked as a field landman on prospects in Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Louisiana.
Leaving Tideway in 1981,  Jon joined Southport Exploration, Inc. in Tulsa, as a staff landman and in that capacity he was primarily responsible for managing land activities in the Anadarko Basin of Oklahoma however his prior knowledge and experience with land practices in Louisiana led to his assumption of managing prospects in the Coastal Parishes of South Louisiana.
Career wide, Jon’s responsibilities have included supervising field landmen in the various states in title, leasing and curative matters, scheduling and testifying on exploration related causes before the Oklahoma Corporation Commission and the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources, negotiating well trades and preparing related documents, reviewing title opinions and being responsible for satisfaction of title requirements.  
Throughout the late 1980s and early 1990’s Jon worked on land and data conversion projects for Oxy Petroleum, Amerada Hess, Phillips Petroleum Company and Amoco Production Company and he joined Associated Resource, Inc. (ARI) in 1997 as a staff landman.
During his tenure with ARI Jon was assigned the responsibility of assisting Barrett Resources Corporation with sales of its Gulf Coast and selected Mid-Continent properties and subsequently the management of Barrett’s remaining Mid-Con core properties until those properties were acquired by Williams Exploration.
In the mid 1990’s Jon began doing acquisition and divestures for clients specializing in overseeing all of the due-diligence necessary for closings with a minimal amount of adjustments.
