Watson Gas is a locally owned, family operated propane gas company

serving  upper Accomack County and Chincoteague Island, VA.


Watson Gas was founded by Rick Watson, his wife Cristy and two sons Richie and Bradley Watson.


Having worked as operations manager for Kellam Energy from 1979-1988 and for Sharp Energy from 1988-1999, Rick recognized an opportunity for a small, locally owned gas company offering service and delivery more aligned with customers needs in the area.  So, in June of 1999 Rick and his father Bill Watson set the first tank and our effort began.  


We pride ourselves in personal customer service, being flexible to our customers needs and requests, offering competitive pricing and payment programs.  Pleasing our customers pleases us.


Our daughter-in-law, Shanna, Bradley's wife manages our office located at 4089 Main Street on Chincoteague Island.
