Meet The Founders

Our team came together to bring differentiated solutions that help our partners and customers produce more efficiently. We have a long track record in oil and gas production and services, in deepwater and on land, domestic and international.

Our solutions cater to oil and gas producers, as well as Salt Water Disposal (SWD) operators, and the agricultural and forestry industries. We have an extensive background beyond oil and gas, including experience in telecommunications, supply chain management, private oil and gas offerings, environmental compliance, and surface land management.

John Griffin (left) and Ronnie Kamper (right) commenced working together in 2014 in a variety of businesses.

When Ronnie left BP as a deepwater production superintendent in 2014, he joined John at FTO Services, a deepwater well intervention joint venture between FMC Technologies and Edison Chouest Offshore. John was CEO of FTO.

Ronnie joined the team to run operations and finish the integration of the vessel and subsea systems, the training of the integrated teams, and lead the Wet Systems Integration Test.

After FTO was integrated to TechnipFMC in 2016, Ronnie formed Thunderbird Field Services. John joined him as COO in 2019 and led the company throughout 2020. During COVID and with John’s leadership, the company moved into Forestry and expanded operations in Alaska.

John and Ronnie formed Acacia Energy Solutions to leverage their backgrounds and networks toward bringing differentiated technology-based service solutions to the oil and gas, forestry, and agriculture industries.


Acacia partners with Energy clients to achieve their commercial, operational, and ESG goals through integrated solutions that increase production yields and resource efficiency.

We believe in three key pillars of Customer Value:

Operational Excellence | Differentiated Technology | Easy to Work With
