Mineral Management

Merit Mineral Management is a full-service offering committed to maximizing the value of your mineral and royalty portfolios. Our team of experts includes attorneys, certified landmen, CPAs, tax specialists, certified appraisers, and software developers—all with decades of experience and a proven history of maximizing the bottom line. 

Areas of expertise include:

Service: Our professionals do more than simply check a box—we monitor the accounting and recover lost revenue, and we make sure you stay informed through simple-to-read reporting. We work on your behalf to negotiate advantageous mineral contracts, including oil and gas leases, right-of-way agreements, pipeline easements, and surface-use agreements. 

Technology: Merit Mineral Management has established a strategic partnership with Royalty Advocate, a software provider focused on disrupting traditional mineral rights management practices. The result is a technology platform that offers you complete, real-time visibility into your mineral and royalty portfolio. Instantly see what you own and where, integrated with state-collected data to ensure you’re being paid correctly.

Solutions: Partnering with our clients means we go the extra mile. Our transparent management approach keeps you apprised of your mineral activity. In addition to monitoring permits, operator filings and current production data, we perform regular audits of past production to recover revenue you are owed. You also get in-house tax professionals who evaluate, protest and negotiate to reduce your property tax burden, adding even more to your bottom line. Merit doesn’t just streamline your revenue; we unlock the true value of mineral ownership.
