The Cholla Cactus is one of the most popular and colorful cactus plants indigenous to the Southwest. Its blossoms come in every conceivable shades of red, yellow, and gold. In addition to its beauty, the Cholla Cactus is known for its durable, vigorous, and stubbornly tenacious life span. As the Cholla Cactus, Cholla Petroleum can, has, and will continue to overcome challenging times. Our 60+ year history gives evidence to Cholla’s tough, formidable, and competitive spirit. For more than 60 years the Powell family and Cholla’s team have operated one of the most successful private oil and gas companies in the Southwest. Cholla will continue to live out the tenacious example given to us by the Cholla Cactus.
