Fantastic podcast for the novice mineral right owner

I just found this podcast a few weeks ago and have spent hours already trying to gain a basic understanding of the oil and gas industry. My siblings and I inherited my dad’s oil companies and mineral rights when he passed away unexpectedly in 2006. I wish I would have had a resource like that years ago but better late than never! Thank you for explaining the verbiage and how this industry works for those who are not acquainted with the oil and gas industry!

Mineral Rights Podcast

Excellent resource for the oil and gas mineral/royalty owner! The balanced emphasis on the perennial nuts and bolts of managing such interests, as well as timely updates on market conditions and other developments of interest, should benefit owners and advisors of all levels of knowledge and experience. Finally, unlike some other products out there, Matt and his guests offer thoughtful and dispassionate perspectives on matters directly impacting the mineral/royalty owner, as opposed to a bunch of ideological blather or oil-industry spin.

Mineral Rights for the Accountant

I’ve worked in the oil and gas industry an account for about 12 years. This podcast has really helped me connect how mineral rights and my work as an accountant fit together. Even after working in the industry for this long, I learn something new in every episode of the show. Keep up the great work.
