“I have had the privilege of working with Ella McDonald, David Wheelis, and the McDonald Land Service Team for over five years. I am most impressed with their professionalism and focus of continuous improvement. Their work ethic, proactive method of business etiquette, and passion for the energy business make them an elitegroup to work with.

I would recommend them to any organization looking for an exciting, professional and experienced land team to help your business and project(s) be successful.”

Freddie Barela's testimonial for MCDLS' oil and gas services

“I strongly believe MLS sets the standard for seismic permitting in Oklahoma. I have used them on numerous seismic projects over the last 10 years and they have exhibited the highest degree of professionalism, timely service and cost effectiveness. They remain my number one choice for seismic permitting and project management. Their staff of trained landmen has delivered every time they have been called on, even in the face of extremely tight deadlines and very complex land situations.”

Tom Greiner, Senior Land Advisor | Samson Resources

Samson Resources testimonial for McDonald Land Services

“I have known and worked directly with Ella McDonald for over 30 years, during my career as a landman and now as the Director of Energy Management at The University of Tulsa. The fact that McDonald Land Services is still providing quality service, in all facets of public records research and negotiations, 30+ years later is a testament to Ella's work ethic and integrity.

The best recommendation I can give for one of my Energy Management graduates is ‘I want that student working for me instead of against me.’ This recommendation also applies to Ella McDonald and McDonald Land Services.”

Ted K. Jacobs, Director of Energy Management | The University of Tulsa
