eLynx SCADA was born out of a midstream company over 20 years ago to help oil and gas companies monitor and interact with their assets remotely. Since then, our technology and team have evolved to provide the most user-friendly, accurate, and reliable SCADA monitoring service on the market.
We’ve taken the SCADA knowledge gained from the oil and gas industry and applied it to creating a water management solution that is ideal for water operators at a cost-effective price point and built to serve rural communities to larger municipalities, with everything in between. As a cloud-based SCADA system, eLynx gives you access to the data you need, when you need it.
We provide automation strategy as industry experts to help you figure out the most budget friendly, reliable way to get the data you need from your field operations and can often get you up and going in a matter of days. With eLynx, there is an entire team to handle every aspect of SCADA.
eLynx was born out of a midstream company, American Central Gas Technologies Inc., a natural gas pipeline company, which was sold to Mark West Energy Partners in 2004.
In 1998, ACGTI saw a need to better serve their pipeline customers using sensors and the internet to monitor their oil and gas wells and alert them when a well stopped producing. By 2000, ACGTI’s customers were using the website service so often that ACGTI decided to start a separate monitoring company. In 2000, eLynx was founded as a web-based software-as-a-service SCADA solution for the oil & gas industry.
Stephen “Steve” Jackson co-founded eLynx Technologies with Stephen J. Heyman in August 2000. He served as the president and chief executive officer of eLynx since it’s inception until the first of January 2020 when he became chairman of the Advisory Board. Unfortunately, Steve passed away suddenly at the end of January 2020.
Steve founded and developed several companies during his business career. These businesses focused on several industries, including commercial and residential land development; oil and gas exploration and production; and a midstream pipeline company that gathered, processed, and treated natural gas and gas liquids.
He has served on the boards of various public companies, including First Interstate Bank of Oklahoma, Boatmen’s Bank of Oklahoma and Silicon Valley Bank of California. He is a past board member of Iron Gate, Saint Simeon’s Episcopal Home and the State Governing Board of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Oklahoma, previously volunteering as a Big Brother for 15 years. Steve also served as a member of the Board of Trustees of The University of Tulsa, participating as a member of the Executive Committee and Chair of the Audit Committee.
Steve earned a degree in Business Administration from Vanderbilt University in 1968.
