Founding Partners

Elizabeth (Liz) Powell


Liz founded The Resource Group in 1996 to provide oil and gas industry expertise to back office support. Her experience in oil and gas accounting began while working in the audit area of an international public accounting firm following her graduation from college with a BS in Business. After leaving public accounting in 1982, Liz was responsible for the accounting, administration and financial reporting for both exploration and production companies as well as mid-stream gathering and processing companies. In 1999 she teamed with Amanda Jones and they expanded the business to include gas marketing, contract administration and acquisition evaluations.

Liz is also involved in the community by committing her time to charitable organizations concerned with childhood hunger and public education.

Amanda Jones


Amanda joined Liz at The Resource Group in 1999 to collectively orchestrate and accelerate the company’s growth, bringing 30 years of oil and gas expertise with her. Amanda began her career after graduating from the University of Tulsa with a petroleum engineering degree. Her first job was with OXY, USA where she worked as an environmental engineer, regulatory engineer and later as gas trader. Her “big company” experience honed her skill for contract negotiations and due diligence that dovetailed perfectly with Liz’s financial approach to business. As business partners the company has grown from just a few local E&P companies requiring diverse specialized services.

Amanda served on the University of Tulsa Petroleum Engineering Industry Advisory Board for twenty years and as chairman of the local chapter of the Society of Petroleum Engineers.
