AND IN BUSINESS

YOU CAN DO
MORE.

ROCKBRIDGE IS BUILT TO HELP YOU DO IT.

Oil and gas producers deserve a reliable partner that provides consistent crude oil marketing and gathering services. Rockbridge was founded by professional oil and gas service providers who believed that the quality of service available in the marketing and gathering industry was below our standards, so we created our own.

Rockbridge was built to excel at the basics of crude oil marketing, and to go beyond to give customers a true partner that adds value at every step of the process.

Customers of Rockbridge experience industry-leading response times on pick-up loads, allowing for predictable and reliable transport that you can build a real schedule around. With 24/7 in-house dispatching service available, Rockbridge is always available and ready to work on your company’s schedule.

Our goal is to keep our customers as involved and informed as they desire, and we’ve built our own systems and tools, as well as invested in the personnel and technology to support this purpose. A robust and friendly back-office team is ready to support customers and solve problems at all times. Our settlement process was built to be timely and transparent, and can be customized.

As a key partner in our customers’ businesses, our producers deserve access to real data on key operational and financial metrics. Rockbridge works to give deeper insights to customers in a monthly metrics report that is customized for each producer.

In all things, Rockbridge believes in going beyond the status quo, and it’s in our DNA to innovate and create new solutions to old industry problems with a both a firm foundation in the traditions of our business and a sharp eye on the future of the industry.

WE’RE ON YOUR MARKETING TEAM.
