WellAware, a San Antonio startup specializing in oilfield data analysis, announced Wednesday that has raised $37 million.

Among the investors: former Vice President Dick Cheney, Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim and Edward E. Whitacre Jr., former chairman and CEO of General Motors and AT&T.

Cheney and Whitacre also sit on the board of the company, which launched last year.

As former head of Halliburton, an energy services provider, Cheney has many ties to the oil and gas sector.

Sessions were secret and the White House refused to release the names of those attending. It was later determined that many were high-level executives in the oil and gas industry.
