The Albrecht Team

Our Team

same people, same results

No other firm in the industry has a longer track record.


Company

A Few Words

Albrecht & Associates is headquartered in Houston, Texas, with a satellite office in Denver, Colorado. We are an affiliate of Morgan Keegan. When you hire Albrecht & Associates, that is exactly what you get: Albrecht and associates. Bob Albrecht personally oversees the engineering on every deal. He still forecasts every decline curve used in our sales. Harrison Williams does the selling. This provides a consistency to our work that allows the industry to calibrate us and know what to expect from us.


Experience

Our associates, all engineers and geologists by training, have an average 20 years’ experience in oil and gas. They are seasoned professionals with A&D backgrounds. They know what buyers are looking for in a data room and they know the answers to the questions that will be asked about the properties. We don’t want buyers wasting their time in our data rooms; we want them finding and understanding value.
