Drake Land Services was founded in 2013 by Michael Peiler and Hunter Buchert. The two had worked together on previous projects and had mutual respect for each other’s work ethic, ability, and drive. Hunter and Michael combine for over 30 years of experience in the land profession. Over nine years later, Drake has clients with operations in Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, Nebraska, North Dakota, Montana, and Wyoming. The company’s namesake is the Drake Well in Titusville, Pennsylvania. Spud in 1859, it was the first well drilled with the intention of commercially producing oil.
