CONSERV COMPANY HISTORY

ConServ’s roots begin in 1970 when its Owner, David A. Freshwater, founded D.A. Freshwater Well Service Company to provide oil and gas well servicing, trucking, pipeline construction and roustabout services to oil and gas production companies in central West Virginia. In 1975, Mr. Freshwater teamed up with the late Richard L. Mann and Reeves Lewenthal, a U.S. art pioneer turned oil and gas developer, and through hard work and determination, the company expanded its equipment inventory and eventually evolved into a full service oil and gas contracting company known as Petro Services Inc. In 1981, Petro Services merged with Allegheny Western (A&W) Energy Corporation (a publicly traded company headquartered in New York). After supervising the drilling and completion of over 350 wells throughout the Appalachian Basin, Mr. Freshwater resigned from his position with A&W in 1986 and founded D.A. Freshwater Company.

Over a short time period, he re-acquired most of the original assets he contributed to A&W ( including several key employees) and re-established his firm as the ‘go to’ contractor for A&W as well as many other exploration & production (E&P) firms in the region. In 1993, D.A. Freshwater Company changed its legal name to Contractor Services Inc. of West Virginia. In 1998 the company principals, J. Scott Freshwater and David A. Freshwater, co-founded Reserve Oil & Gas, Inc. and later two other independently owned and managed companies, and began further diversifying its client base and service offerings.
