PLM Midland attends PBLA Shrimp Boil & Golf Tournament

This year’s PBLA shrimp boil and golf tournament was an astounding success! The PLM Midland Branch hosted a pre-shrimp boil happy hour where many of PLM’s clients were invited to attend. It was hosted on the rooftop bar of the DoubleTree Hotel in downtown Midland and was a fantastic time for all those who came out to the event. Everyone in attendance bonded over great drinks and some perfect weather that was not too windy for once!

After the happy hour, the Permian Basin Landman’s Association (“PBLA”) hosted their annual Shrimp Boil at The Bar in downtown Midland. Landmen from all over crowded the venue to eat delicious shrimp, enjoy beer, live music, and good company. PLM Midland had a great showing of landmen who came out for the boil and were able to connect and mingle with clients and other professionals in the field. It was not only a great networking event, but a great time for all who attended.

The very next morning, the PBLA hosted the annual Golf Classic at The Hogan Golf Course in Midland. PLM had a premiere spot on the course where a tent was set up right off the tee box of the 16th Hole. Koozies, croakies, PLM cups, and beverages were handed out to the golfers as they made their way to the hole. For the second year in a row, PLM provided brick oven fired pizzas from the Cane D’oro Pizza Truck at the tent. Golfers were more than pleased—who doesn’t love pizza and golf?

The Shrimp Boil and Golf Classic are the premiere events for the PBLA. Clients and landmen from all over come out to Midland to partake in what they call the “Landman’s Spring Break.” It was not only a fun and exciting time for everyone, but was also a great opportunity for lasting connections and friendships. The PLM Midland office was proud and honored to represent Purple “The Purple Way” to those who attended the event. One thing is certain, PLM Midland is eagerly looking forward to next year’s event!

PLM Hosts TTU Law School Alumni Happy Hour



Purple Land Management was proud to host newly named Texas Tech University School of Law Dean, Jack Wade Nowlin, at a reception for law alumni.  The event, held September 14th at PLM’s Corporate office in downtown Fort Worth, was attended by fifty local alumni of Texas Tech School of Law.  PLM has been actively recruiting law graduates and energy management students from Texas Tech for several years.

The event was sponsored by Purple Land Management and Tech Law Alumni Adrian Macias.  Adrian is PLM’s Vice President of Corporate Development.  “Some of our best landmen in Midland and Fort Worth are law graduates of Texas Tech School of Law.  We were so excited to welcome Dean Nowlin to Fort Worth and to allow the local Tech Law alumni to come to our corporate office and learn more about what we do here at PLM.”

This event was one of many around the state that Dean Nowlin has attended since being named head of Tech Law on June 6, 2017.  Events were held for local alumni from El Paso to Dallas.  Dean Nowlin is a native of San Angelo, Texas, and spent the previous seventeen years at Ole Miss.

Temple Anderson, manager of PLM’s Midland, TX, office, will attend a career fair at Texas Tech University next Wednesday, September 27, 2017.  If you are interested in attending and learning more about career opportunities with PLM, please contact Kristen Leighton at


PLM to Attend Summer NAPE

Purple Land Management attended the Summer NAPE expo August 16-17, 2017.  We served as the popcorn sponsor and made sure attendees kept their hunger at bay throughout the day. Nathan McIntyre, Vice President of Land and Technical Operations, had the opportunity to speak at the NAPE Theater. He gave an amazing presentation about Overdrive™ powered by Esri®. His speech was streamed live on Facebook and Instagram and drew traffic to the booth for questions and demonstrations of Overdrive™.

We hosted a happy hour at Pete’s Dueling Piano Bar and had more than 50 people in attendance which represented a large variety of companies that PLM does work for across the nation.  The dueling pianists took song requests from the audience and had everyone singing along, while definitely off key, to popular tunes for hours. A new rendition of the YMCA was performed on stage by Arthur Medina, Nathan McIntyre, David Brooks, Justin Mayhall and John Soltis.  While their dance moves were entertaining, we think they should stick to their day job. Attendees also were able to enjoy a photo booth at the happy hour.

Purple offices were represented by Jesse Hejny, Bryan Cortney, Adrian Macias, Nathan McIntyre, Ryan Barnhart, Arthur Medina, Temple Anderson, Cori Willett, Aaron McCamant, David Brooks, Taylor Stallons, Sutton Steele and Whitney Sellers.  Summer NAPE was very a successful event for the company and the attendees were able to catch up with many old friends and customers.

We want to extend our thanks to those who attended Summer NAPE and helped make it a great success!  We look forward to seeing everyone again at NAPE Summit in February.
