About Us (The Company History, Current Plans and Culture)

In 2018 I left my corporate job to start this company. I didn t raise any outside money and used my personal savings to fund initial expenses. Our focus then, as it is now, is buying oil and gas minerals and royalties directly from landowners in the Powder River Basin of Wyoming.

Today the company has a stable asset base and we are ready to hire rockstars to continue our growth.

This is a results only work environment. We don t get bogged down tracking hours, policing dress codes, etc. We are relentless in our pursuit of business goals. Average performers will hate it here and be asked to leave. Exceptional individuals who work hard will succeed and be rewarded for it.
