Every revolution begins with a


In 2019, we established Safire Oil and Gas Consulting in Northwest Houston, Texas, with a satellite office in Austin, Texas. With decades of experience in the oil and gas industry, we are prepared to partner with clients looking to minimize the stress of managing severance tax and maximize opportunities to add to their bottom-line performance. What began as years of working inside oil and gas companies grew to us leading the efforts of accounting firms specializing in state oil and gas taxation. Today, we have evolved into a stellar team that is prepared to deliver a superior experience tailored to fit each client’s needs. 

It’s not by chance that we have chosen a yellow sapphire as a key symbol to represent our company. As the stone of prosperity and wealth, we are inspired by its power to fuel our ambition and promote business success. Bright, energetic, and rare in form, its beauty is the culmination of all the attributes we love most about this special gem and what we take the most pride in about ourselves. As we like to say, “The most priceless gems are often hidden, and only the dedicated are willing to find them.” 

Through unwavering integrity, insight to considering our client’s needs, and specialized intelligence, it is our mission to minimize the stress of managing severance tax and maximize opportunities to add to your bottom-line performance.

Our dedicated team has helped pave the way to creating a company that is committed to give more, do more, and be more for each client that we serve.

“I had the opportunity to work with Sarah on a Texas Severance Tax project. Safire  brought an expertise that our organization simply could not match. Because of their efforts, we were able to square away 2 years of tax issues penalty free, and take advantage of tax savings in areas to which we were previously unaware. Our organization was able to translate the clear and concise procedures that they delivered and apply them to many of our other Texas assets. I would 10/10 recommend Sarah and the rest of the Safire team to anyone who needs help navigating the thick weeds of Oil and Gas Severance Tax.”
