Louisiana Oil & Gas Association 

Mike Moncla is president of the Louisiana Oil & Gas Assocation. He serves as CEO for his third-generation family workover business, Moncla Companies, LLC. After having graduated from the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now UL at Lafayette) in 1990 with a degree in business administration, Mike began his career as a bit salesman for Reed Tool Company, working in Lafayette and Houma. 

In 1994, Mike joined forces with his father’s business, Moncla Well Service, a workover company with seven workover rigs. For the next 15 years, Mike, his father Charlie, and the rest of the Moncla clan grew their family business, through 11 acquisitions, into the largest privately owned workover company in the U.S. Mike was chief operating officer for the business that serviced seven states. 

In 2008, Moncla Companies sold its business to Key Energy Services, where Mike then served as division manager for the company’s southeastern division. In 2010, Mike, along with his two brothers and uncle, returned to the family business by buying back their previously owned six workover barges from Key Energy. Since that time, the Moncla Companies, LLC, has grown and diversified through several acquisitions. 

Mike serves on the executive board for LOGA, on the board for the Louisiana Gulf Coast Oil Exposition, and as chairman of the Lourdes Foundation. He serves on the Foundation Board for St. Thomas More Catholic High School. He is a Eucharistic Minister at Holy Cross Catholic Church. He is married and has one daughter.
