Our Story

Trigen Energy's namesake is what sets this company apart form its competitors.  Rooted with three generations of knowledge in the hydrocarbon business.  Clifford Briggs started in the oil business in 1952 and grew to become an Inaugural member of the Indiana Oil & Gas Association's Hall of Fame.  David Briggs, Clifford's son, was raised in the business, received his Geology degree from Indiana University all before becoming an innovative force in both the exploration and environmental sides of the oil business.   Eric Briggs, Trigen Energy's founder has set forth his company in a new generation of exploration in the energy business.   Eric, like his father was raised in the oil business, with early memories spent with his father in the  'Dog House" of his drilling rig running samples.   Earning his stripes in the mud Eric became a confident driller and foreman.    After several years in the fields Eric took on the legal side of the business working with land departments with multiple companies in the Illinois Basin.  After many years as a free lance landman Eric set forth to open his own company in early 2013.   Since the first project Trigen Energy took on as a company we have striven to raise the bar in client satisfaction.
