OPPORTUNITY-AWARE: Producing & Non-Producing Mineral Interests

Recognizing the ground-shifting impact of the Shale Revolution on mineral ownership, Rhett Bennett formed Black Mountain Royalty Company LP in 2007 to pursue the acquisition of producing and non-producing mineral interests in active shale plays across the United States. Shale plays are contiguous hydrocarbon-rich formations spanning hundreds, if not thousands, of square miles deep beneath the surface of the earth. Because of the contiguous nature of the rock, shale plays exhibit consistent geology and pressure characteristics, which allow more precise asset valuation on an acre-by-acre basis –– thus allowing oil and gas interest owners an opportunity to monetize their ownership stakes.

Why Mineral Interests

Energy asset ownership has long been used as a hedge against inflation and adverse market performance. A blend of non-producing and producing assets can deliver a blend of short, medium, and long-term potential revenue streams resulting from producing royalties, periodic payments of lease bonuses, and lease extension option payments.
