Holloman Corporation originally began in 1960 in Odessa, Texas as Holloman Construction. The company was founded and led by Sam Holloman and it was best known for providing general oilfield contract labor and equipment services to major oil and gas companies who were located in the Permian Basin. Today, Holloman is 100% employee-owned and provides a broad spectrum of services on a global level.

Founded in 1960

Originating in Odessa, Texas, Holloman was founded in 1960 as a construction company. The company began as a provider of general oilfield contract labor and equipment services to major oil and gas companies (such as Gulf Oil, Phillips Petroleum, Texaco, Amoco, and Getty Oil) located in the Permian Basin. The majority of work centered on water-flood, oil production facilities, injection lines, injection stations, gas gathering pipelines, well hook-up, battery construction and gas transmission lines.


CO2 Injection Fields

The company worked in the first CO2 injected fields for Shell Oil Company, Amerada Hess, Texaco, and Chevron. This work expanded to other companies in the late 80’s as new government regulations required transmission pipeline companies to repair old pipelines.


Water and Sewer Utility Projects

The late 90’s produced an extreme downturn in the energy business, and Holloman was again forced to look outside of the energy sector to find construction work. In 1998 Holloman diversified and expanded the company’s scope of work with municipal water and sewer utility projects throughout Texas. That operation was quickly successful in large urban areas and the result of this expansion provided Holloman with the combined knowledge to offer energy-related pipeline construction in high-consequence areas.


Holloman Corporation 100% Employee Owned

In 2002, an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) was formed and the company was purchased from Sam Holloman. The company became Holloman Corporation and 100% employee owned. Several acquisitions followed. In 2003, Holloman purchased TW Cook Engineering and consolidated with Holloman’s own engineering division which was originally formed in 1992. Holloman Engineering LLC was created and shortly thereafter in 2004, the acquisition of L&P Pipeline and Construction of Ganado, Texas followed.


Shale Gas Technology

The company’s success in high consequence and urban areas promoted our expansion into the Dallas-Fort Worth area in 2003. The expansion was initially involved in municipal projects but transformed into Shale gas technology. Holloman became one of the major providers of construction services in the Barnett Shale. Building on its experience and relationships in the Barnett Shale, Holloman has expanded its presence into Haynesville, Eagle Ford, Utica and Marcellus Shale Plays as well as the Permian Basin.


Headquarters and Offices

In 2007 Holloman moved its headquarters and corporate offices to Houston, Texas and maintain area construction offices in Odessa, Dallas-Fort Worth, Pearsall, Wyoming, and Pennsylvania.


Holloman Engineered Products

In 2014 Holloman was awarded its first project to engineer and construct a harp style slug catcher system. Three years later, in 2017, Holloman Engineered Products was formed in response to continued successes and industry interest in its slug catcher business segment. As of the close of 2019, Holloman Engineered Products is recognized as a leading vendor and constructor of slug catcher systems.


Tank Services Division

In 2019, Holloman’s Tank Services Division was established to meet the every growing needs of Holloman’s current customer base. Since its inception, Holloman’s Tank Services Division has realized great success in the atmospheric tank repair services arena. Holloman is committed to the sustainable growth of the Tank Services Division in both repair services and new tank construction in 2020.

Today, Holloman is a fully integrated Construction, Engineering, Project Management and Civil Operations Organization and we offer custom Slug Catcher and Tank Services. The corporation is a global provider and employ personnel with experience in urban and other high-impact/high consequence areas.
