About Eiche Mapes

Who we are

John Eiche and Ted Mapes formed Eiche, Mapes and Company, Inc. in 1985, and along with the help of many others enjoyed a successful partnership for over 25 years. Ted Mapes retired in 2010 but the firm has continued in business, led by John Eiche and longtime project supervisors Loren Bennett, Bill Johnson, and Don Garrett.

John Eiche is a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin and has been a Certified Professional Landman through the American Association of Professional Landmen for over 25 years. He is also a member of the East Texas Association of Petroleum Landmen where he held many offices and received the Brantley Jackson Memorial Award for outstanding landman of the year in 2001.

Our goal has been to maintain a stable operating platform from which to provide the most accurate and cost-effective services to our clients. Our supervisors have over 100 years combined experience with the firm and we strive to utilize only the most experienced field personnel. While we have worked and managed major projects in over 15 states and all of Texas, our knowledge and expertise in the East Texas basin are unsurpassed. We endeavor to utilize only members of the AAPL and all employees and contractors are bound by worker’s compensation insurance.
