Griffin Petroleum was founded by Ruben and Ginny Griffin, both petroleum industry pioneers and the late parents of DEG co-founder and managing partner Steve Griffin. Throughout the years, the Griffin family of companies have continued to change and evolve, but one thing remains constant: our passion and commitment to our clients and doing business the right way.
