With roots in reservoir engineering analysis, The Strickland Group (or "TSG") personnel pioneered the programming of simulation models in the 1970's to aid oil and gas clientele in making decisions to increase recovery and economic value, and have conducted hundreds of simulation studies in the years since. As technology began to bloom in the business world, the founding members of The Strickland Group joined forces to offer their years of emerging technology insight to additional enterprises.

Today, with decades of experience to draw upon, The Strickland Group comprises three divisions that work hand-in-hand to offer full-service technology support: Strickland Solutions, the technology and IT systems architecture division; and Strickland Petroleum, the oil and gas engineering branch. Located in the heart of Fort Worth, TX, The Strickland Group professionals serve business around the world, and are truly global leaders in technology.
