Owner & President | David H. Arrington Oil & Gas
David H. Arrington is a native Texan. He was born and raised in the South Dallas community of Oak Cliff. David attended Texas Tech University and earned a finance degree in 1983.

After graduating, David's interest for the oil and gas industry led him to the Permian Basin. He moved to Midland in 1984, and began his career as an independent oil producer. His drilling began in West Texas and Southeastern New Mexico. By 2003, he expanded his operations to drill in the Barnett Shale. Divesting of his Barnett holdings in 2007, he then turned his attention back to the Permian Basin.

David is a devoted husband and father of five and upholds an active role in his community. David enjoys fly fishing and photography. His love for photography was the catalyst to his accumulation of his world-class collection of Ansel Adams prints. 

David's high-energy personality and passion for the oil business has helped mold him into an industry leader. David enjoys life and enjoys those he works with.
