The L. E. Jones history in the drilling industry began in 1955 with a partnership of L. E. Jones, his son LaWayne Jones, and his brother-in-law Edwin G. Gilliam.  Under LaWayne’s leadership, L. E. Jones Drilling grew into a 14 rig company that was known for its safety, honesty, and integrity along with outstanding drilling expertise.  With over 25 years of experience in the oilfield, LaWayne’s son Lance Jones formed L. E. Jones Drilling LLC in 2005.  L. E. Jones Drilling LLC is committed to continuing the legacy and preserving the high standards of performance and safety the L. E. Jones’ name has come to represent in the drilling industry.
