OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma, April 20, 2020 – The National Stripper Well Association (NSWA) recently elected Dick Schremmer of Haysville, Kansas to serve as its 2020-2021 chairman during their 2020 April board meeting. Schremmer is president of Bear Petroleum & Gressel Oil Field Service.

“I am humbled and proud to be selected as the next chairman of the NSWA,” Schremmer said. “Our outgoing chairwoman did such an outstanding job, I just hope I can fill her heels!”

Schremmer succeeds Darlene Wallace, who has been in the industry for almost two decades.

“Dick Schremmer will bring a tremendous level of knowledge and expertise to NSWA,” Wallace said. “I have worked with him in other organizations and he is a man on a mission when it comes to getting the job done.” 

Schremmer has been a member of NSWA for 27 years and has served on its board of directors for the past two years. He also currently serves on the boards of the Kansas Independent Oil & Gas Association, Association of Energy Service Companies, Kansas Strong and is Vice Chairman of the Liaison Committee of the Cooperating Oil and Gas Associations. 

“The NSWA is comprised of small oil and gas businessmen and women from all around the country,” Schremmer said. “This group is the only national group supporting solely the marginal well oil and gas producers in our country, advocating on their behalf each day at our nation’s capitol.”

Schremmer started his oil field career during high school in 1970 and worked for a variety of companies until he formed Bear Petroleum in 1985. Then, in 1988, he also acquired Gressel Oil Field Service and expanded the company from a 2 rig well-servicing company in Burrton, KS into a full-service company with locations in Burrton, Great Bend, Hays and Haysville.
