About Us

Your #1 Low Cost Home Heating Oil Company in the New Haven, Ct Area.

Oyster River Petroleum is now Oyster River Energy.

Oyster River Petroleum was founded by Ed Granfield on his parent’s kitchen table in January of 1987. They set aside a small area of the house for a table and chair, a calculator, a rotary phone, a rolodex file, and a goal. That goal was to offer full service along with low cost home heating oil in the New Haven, CT area . Ed then purchased his first oil truck, a used 1976 Peterbuilt with a small 2200 gallon steel tank and by word of mouth began delivering fuel oil to friends and neighbors. Later that spring, he purchased an answering machine, a pager, and hired their first service technician, and a company was born.

Today, 30 years later Oyster River Energy is serving over 1500 homeowners in the Greater New Haven area. The company utilizes a computerized degree day system to provide pinpoint automatic delivery service, along with discount and affordable home heating oil pricing, comprehensive service plans with 24 hour emergency response, on-line payment service, low cost monthly budget payment plans, and the sales, service and installation of high efficiency residential heating and cooling systems.

A lot has changed over the years but some things never change. Ed still has the original table and calculator, and you can call or email him, or any member of the staff with questions, concerns, or requests anytime. Customer service is the hallmark of this family business, so by all means why not drop us a line today. We are always happy to hear from you!

“Very easy to deal with.  I do check around and they are always competitive.  January 2011 during one of the big storms, the tech came out within an hour of my call and fixed my boiler. Top shelf service.”
